'Through the Surf'

'Through the Surf'
49" x 12"
Oil on box canvas, 2011

Due to some issues with the big Friesian painting taking forever to dry between layers I have managed to get this painting finished while waiting!

When I was visiting Saltburn beach with family last April there was a young girl and her TB enjoying a good canter up and down. I was stood on the pier looking down when I took the photos that I based this painting on and thought it would suit this long thin canvas that I have had sat prepped for ages.

The edges of the box canvas are painted, I'll try and get a photo of it on the wall when the light is a bit better.

Bit hard to see such a long thin canvas on screen so here is a close up too...
