Anthony Watson - Paintings

Upstairs in the Granary:
Growing up in a town close to the sea I found that I was drawn to the sights and sounds of the coast. The paintings are my way of capturing the feelings evoked and transfering those feelings onto canvas and wood. The images are seascapes but hopefully they convey the sights, smells, power & excitement that the sea evokes.
Painted on board, wood and canvas, they are more abstract and tactile than your usual pictures of the sea. Just imagine being stood inside your home, all warm and cosy, staring out at the freezing cold stormy sea , I guess that is what I am trying to convey.
