Surfer off Ventnor Last week.
Lockdown projects... This is a view from the cliff tops near Blackgang Chine looking down on St. Catherine's lighthouse and the seemingly endless ocean beyond. The skies here seem really big.
I'll often take a morning run past this spot, and have photographed it many times, but never loved the result. I like it best when the sea and the sky and the earth all feel part of the same entity: shaped from the same clay so to speak.
I'm not explaining this well, but sometimes when it's misty and the light is low, it's hard to tell where the earth turns into air and the sea turns into sky. For some reason this makes me happy. This, I think, is what this picture is about.
It's a pencil sketch and a water big messy watercolour which I've then brought into photoshop and completely reworked. I like it, and I hope it pleases you too.
