Salt Marshes, Holes Bay


Excellent detail Andrea considering the small scale .....lovely painting.

Nicely done - lovely atmosphere

Thank you so much for your lovely comment Fiona :-) I’m really enjoying painting at this smaller size - there’s so much I want to paint right now - and this size allows me to do that.

Thank you for your compliment Margaret, it’s a beautiful spot, thanks for liking it! :-)

Thanks so much Anjana, that’s so kind of you :-)

Beautiful, Andrea. Such a clever composition.

Thank you Shirley, very kind of you :-)

Love the way you have captured the essence of the place, the subtle lighting and the birds contributing a liveliness to the scene. Super painting Andrea.

Thank you so much for your lovely, considered comments Carole. Very much appreciated :-)

Hang on Studio Wall

A second painting of those beautiful salt marshes in Holes Bay, Poole Harbour - to pair with the first painted earlier this week. This view had a rather crowded strip of seabirds on it - I’ve suggested about half of those birds here. Another small painting at 6 inches square, oil on gessobord.
