The Gallery will be Closed 13th Jan -13th Feb 2020
Neil is off to take photographs starting on the wild Atlantic Coast of Ireland, whilst Freya and Holli are taking a well earned break. It's been a crazy busy time for us! So thank you for all of your interest and support. Long may it continue!
This means we will not be able to ship new orders now until mid February. In the meantime, here is a new picture I hope you will enjoy.
The West Pier - Brighton
The old West Pier remains in Brighton is an irresistible subject. This is a long exposure as the early morning light is just creeping into the sky.
For me this picture speaks of the futility of our dreams and ambitions when faced with the immensity of time and nature. ( I find this oddly comforting!) The West Pier always brings my mind a few lines of poetry recalled from school days..
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
THRILLED TO ANNOUNCE..
Paula Russell won our raffle for Ukraine ( She was so very happy when we spoke!). We are even more thrilled to tell you we sold 641 tickets, which means that with Gift Aid we were able to send £8012.50p to UNICEF in Ukraine yesterday. A heartfelt thank you to everyone who supported us in this - you guys are amazing!
