I’ve been reworking my painting of Hummersea Beach. This is the beach closest to me, no golden sand, but interesting as alum industry once made this area a very busy place. Erosion has taken buildings which once stood on the cliff, but some of their back walls can still be seen embedded in the rock face. The dark side of things does appeal to me, but unless very well lit the details in the shadows were lost. So I lightened up. It’s Spring time.

Hummersea Beach. oils on block canvas. 40x100cm (approx 16×39″)
