Paintings of the west coast of Britain by Rob Miller RSA

Painting of the Isle of Skye
Isle of Skye oil on canvas 30x30cm

Painting of Lancashire Coast Line
Humphrey Head Grange Lancashire oil on canvas 30x30cm
Two small oils, part of a new series looking at the west coastline of Britain.  This is something that I have been meaning to do for about 30 years having walked the Cornish Coastal Path, and explored the coasts of Scotland and Wales on land and by sea.The Lancashire and Cumbria coastlines are on home ground s it where. I did plenty of drawings and paintings then in my ketch books and a lot of small watercolours which were shown at the Gallery in Sennon Cove.

I've just taken this to the framers for the buyer along with a couple more that he bought last week and it gave me chance to re photograph it to show some of the detail in the work itself. Parts of this are quite abstracted with paint poured, dripped and scratched into to try and recreate the texture and movement of light and form on the high moorland pastures. This work was painted last two summers ago it must have been dryer and warmer then. This year a piece of wet blotting paper would suffice..

Three paintings above Manchester viewed from the West Pennine Moors begun outdoors and completed this afternoon in the studio at Falcon Mill. Sunshine brings out the artist well some sunshine below threatening clouds, the rain held off, the birds sang their songs and the dancing shadows of the clouds and grasses in the breeze produced that song to Elysium which always gladdens the ears  'an ode to joy'.ode to joy
