Paintings of Suffolk Seascapes

The seascapes of my native Suffolk coast continue to inspire me. Aldeburgh has always been a favourite location to paint in and I have worked in a variety of ‘studios’, firstly house-sitting for a friend for 2-3 months every winter which was a fantastic opportunity as the house sits just back from the beach with amazing views. For a few years I was lucky enough to have access to the South Lookout Tower directly on the beach with a tiny studio at the top which had far ranging views both to the north all the way up to Thorpeness, and south down to Slaughden and Orford. The wide expanse of beach below and along the shore is always occupied with a few people either walking, sitting, standing, in conversation or quiet reflection; couples, families and my particular favourite, a solitary figure within a vast empty space.

I am now fortunate to have my very own beach hut overlooking the beach at Brackenbury Cliffs in Felixstowe which is breathtakingly beautiful. The seascapes stretch away north to Old Felixstowe and Bawdsey, and on a clear day south all the way to Walton on the Naze. I love the sea, the sound of the waves crashing on the shore, and the colours and mood the sea presents in all weathers; calm like a mill pond one day and wild and romantic the next. I seem to have a relationship with the sea which is very energizing and therapeutic; a figure or two painted in front of the sea reflects this and has become endlessly fascinating as subject matter for my paintings. Many of the smaller works seen here were painted directly from the subject and the larger pieces painted in my studio in Ipswich.
