Bathers at Rockcliffe
Where painted: In studio from a number of photos
Medium: Pastel on paper
Size: 16.25 ins x 22 ins inclusive of mount. Supplied framed under glass in a 1.25 ins wooden frame. The inside edge of the frame, for the first half inch is un-stained medium-dark wood, the remainder being stained in blue to tone with the sea colour.
Inspiration: I had painted a similar picture of two of my nephews and their cousins, also paddling at Rockcliffe, for a Christmas present and decided to do something similar to put up for sale. Some of the bathers are known to me, others not, but I didn’t put much detail in their faces as the picture is more about the way they are moving or standing and the reflections in the water.
Price: £165 (including frame and p & p)
