Seascape in blue

by Emma Akroyd

While Max was digging over the polytunnel I set about finishing off this painting that I started before the Summer holidays. We had gone up to St Pol de Leon on what looked like a rather unpromising day, but by the time we arrived a storm was blowing in from out at sea. It created the most beautiful dramatic cloud colours and forms and I thought I just had to paint it!

‘Seascape in blue’ isn’t quite finished yet, but I thought I’d show it anyway!

Here’s a shot of the studio. ‘Light grey’ Farrow and Ball paint is on the walls, which does make the colours in the paintings pop out but it can be a bit dark to work in on a rainy day. I’ll keep the colour for now as I am in two minds as to whether to paint it lighter.
