Title: Trow Rock from the Dunes
Dimension: 50 x 40 cms

This one of three paintings, soon to be four, of heavy seas at South Shields, North East England. I took the photos for these paintings on May 4th, this year, when I suddenly came across a particularly active sea. An onshore wind and very high tide had conspired to create a scene rarely seen. It was a particularly blustery day.
MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
Any points regarding colour and tonal value would be helpful, but particularly mood and atmosphere. The composition highlights the vastness of the sea to the left by leaving it devoid of land. The gulls are ever-present and seem to react to the ocean turmoil.
