I hope that this painting is an example of saying more with less. Sometimes skies are so beautiful and eye-catching that I can't resist painting them. But the clouds are constantly changing and usually very complicated - which wouldn't work in a painting. In this picture, I've simplified the skies and smoothed them out to create what I hope is a serene, mellow atmosphere. I've deliberately lost a lot of detail on the land, too, saying just as much as necessary to create a simple but beautifully compelling scene. So here is 'Mellow Sunset over Findhorn Beach', watercolour, 34 x 25 cm. Both the original and prints are available - please see my Coastline Gallery for details or just click on the picture.
