Wonderful Brian, rocks great and I like the water reflections.

Lovely glow on the sand.

Thank you very much, Carole and Linda, for looking and commenting. Always appreciated. Bri

Lovely scene, Brian - I do like the" rivulet" with its reflection, running into the sea.

Not seen much from you recently Brian! Anyway, good to see such quality work again from you, this is a delightful seascape by any standard.

Lovely work Brian

Great work Brian, hopefully more to come?

Thank you very much for the Marjorie, Alan, Heather and Russel, for the kind comments. Always appreciated. Marjorie, sometimes at low tide there are dozens of these tidal rivulets flowing back to sea. Pleased you liked this one. Generous words indeed, Alan. Thanks! Very pleased you liked, Heather. Russel, there's more to follow soon. I painted two scenes for Anna, one of Trow Rock and the other of Tynemouth Priory at sunset. She originally wanted both on the one painting, but as they're separated by approx 1 mile, she realised it would be a tall order. Best to all Bri

I’m sure your niece must be delighted with this beautiful seascape Brian. It has a very calming effect and I particularly admire the way you have painted the pooling water under the cliffs and the two strutting, seagulls.

Lovely scene, well painted Brian.

Excellent work Brian and so well painted.

Thank you very much, Carole, for the highly encouraging comments. Much appreciated. Anna hasn't seen this painting yet, due to covid. I'm tempted to post it on facebook so she can see the finished article. Thank you very much, Louise, for the kind comments. Thanks, Dixie, for the thumbs up. Always appreciated. Best to all Bri

I like the purity and the clean lines of the beach, sea and sky. The cliff is beautifully done too. A wonderful painting.

Thank you very much, Willie, for the interesting and kind comments. Much appreciated. Bri

Lovely, the light on the rocks draws you into the painting

Thanks for the kind comments, Paul. I'm delighted the light and shadows are working. Much appreciated Bri

Hang on Studio Wall

Oil on canvas board 50 x 40 cms. This shows Trow Rock from Sandhaven Beach (I really don't like the name, Sandhaven, much preferring Trow Rock Sands). On the cliff top you can see two figures staring out to sea. They represent my eldest brother and his daughter, Anna. He used to take her there to show her his childhood playground. She recently asked me if I could paint the rock as a reminder of those days, given that he passed away a few years ago. I was happy to oblige.
