Storm Collection: 12 May, Holkham. Original Painting
It was 12 May: to celebrate the artist wanted to stroll across Holkham Beach to feel the embrace of the wide open space. The vista was a band of pure grey married to a strip of gold, only cut with darting silhouettes of walkers. But then the sand drew dark as a lone cloud decided to drench her with its cargo.
The artist has signed the painting on the back with the title - both visible from the back of the cradled board.

The revelation of the panoramic beauty of landscape leads to a big explosion of broad strokes of emotion and energy captured in paint.
The ancient method of encaustic art was practiced by the Greeks and Egyptians with 2000 year old examples still in existence. Wax and pigments are fused with heat which dries quickly capturing brush strokes, drips and textures. Encaustic art is an all consuming very physical practice.One is seduced by the process of not just applying paint with a brush, palette knife or hands but also the harnessing of heat to energise materials and move the liquids around. The fluidity of the process allows the materials to mix and metamorphose.
