New work...

New work...

So as life tends to go.. keeping up is hard to do!

A while since my last blog.. but that's not because life has slowed down.. the exact opposite!

Things have been a little on the hectic side, juggling work and family life and at the tail end of a great summer holiday season I'm looking forward to gathering my thoughts, taking a little time to go slower and getting to work on some more photographs for you! 

This summer has been filled with hot sunny days and a very busy Gallery so I've not managed to get out and photograph as much as I would have liked to but I have had a few sporadic opportunities....

So there are a few pieces of new work up on the website now available to purchase..      this one 'One hundred and Seventy Seven Sailboats' was taken as I was leaning out of my friends plane at about 7.30am during the Round the Island Race on July 1st. I love the moody skies and the lone red sail in front of The Needles.. and yes there actually are 177 Sailboats as I got my assistant to count every single one! Haha..

As the season starts to slow down there will be much more time to work on things and to do what I love the most... get out there and take the photographs! So keep a look out..

I hope you have had a great summer and I will endeavour to share more of what is happening with you as I go along..

Any enquiries please do not hesitate to contact me and f you'd like to receive my weekly newsletter then subscribe at the bottom of the home page.

Nice to be back in touch...

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!
