Oil on canvas board, 406 x 305 mm.

This is a painting of a rock formation off the north east coast of England at Trow Rock, South Shields. The rocks used to be
called The Three Sisters but one of them split during the winter storms and so a fourth sister was born. I've been meaning
to paint them for an age but have only just got round to it. I used my own photos as a reference, because of the threatening sky
and dramatic effect. It's part of a series using the same light & shadow and weather conditions. (and the same palette, mac)

Palette: Phthalo blue (Michael Harding oils), cadmium red, titanium white (Cass oils), Payne's gray (Pebeo oils).

Nicely composed JJ. Foreground, birds and light in the distance, water running over the rocks and that energy of spray...much to hold the eye and convey the movement.

Thanks, mac, for the super critique. Much appreciated, as always.

Sorry about the tardy response but I was in Preston yesterday watching Ronnie O'Sullivan make his 1000th century.
Truly awesome experience!

Best
