NEW VENTNOR SEAFRONT GALLERY OPEN.

 

MILKY WAY OVER DARK SEA

A new photograph from last night. I took a walk last night with Ainsley Bennett ( and learn't a few things about the night sky - ainsleybennettphotography.co.uk ), down to the dark beach of Blackgang Chine on the south of the Isle of Wight. The reward was clear skies, and a dark dark sea.

WHAT A SUMMER IT'S BEEN.....  

A new beachfront gallery in the town I live in and love. And it's been so busy. I've loved every minute of it.

Some fun adventures too: from shooting the Round The Island Race from a 1960 plane with the doors off, to dolphins and yachts from my speedboat.

Thanks to everybody who managed to visit, and all you online guests.

And so many future plans too... my underwater camera housing just arrived so expect lots of storm and wave pictures on the website soon.... and some astro-photography ..and swimming with basking sharks (fingers crossed!)...and of course plenty of landscapes..

Happy days indeed...

Neil

THE RETURN OF THE WHALE
THE RETURN OF THE WHALE

by neil williams April 18, 2022

I dream of seeing this - the return of whales to the waters around the Isle of Wight. Not so long ago, in the lives of our great grand parents, whales were a common sight and were even hunted in the Solent.

In the painting I've imagined a Fin Whale breaching with the Needles lighthouse behind. Lit by a crescent moon,  you can also make out St. Catherine's and Hurst Lighthouses in the background.

The picture began life as a big messy watercolour, which I then rework in photoshop.  Click here- The Return Of The Whale - neil williams

FOURTEEN JACKDAWS PAINTING

Six O'clock most mornings you'll find me sitting in my garden in Ventnor overlooking the sea, a mug of black coffee in my hands. For company I have the local tribe of Jackdaws.
Like clockwork, summer and winter, shortly after six am they make their rounds: two or three always clockwise circuits cutting across my garden. They babble excitedly in their squeaky quack chatter and make me smile. I wish I spoke Jackdaw!
This picture began life as a messy watercolour with pen and ink birds, which I've then brought into photoshop and reworked. I like it and hope you do to!
