Across to Bradwell



This is a view across Tollesbury salt marshes on the coast of Essex, England. It’s a fairly undiscovered part of the country with wonderful light & unique scenery. The building on the horizon is the now disused Bradwell power station. I was drawn to the juxtaposition of the monolithic building against the tranquil marshland and sea. Another painting from this Tollesbury series was on display at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in London 2022.
This mixed media landscape canvas was made by using thin layers of oils, acrylics and inks onto a gesso ground. Areas of the painting were then lightly sanded and scratched away to enhance the texture and light effects.
The canvas measures 45cm x 40cm x 1cm is ready to hang, with the painting continuing around the sides of the canvas for continuity.
