Acrylic by Christine Brunnock.
Patches of Blue
I am based in St Ives Cornwall, where I grew up. The Cornish environment provided a constant source of inspiration.
Drawing and painting has always been a way to express myself since childhood. I mainly use acrylic and mixed media to produce expressive and atmospheric seascape paintings that reflect the human emotion and the sea's rhythmic motion; exploring its sensuous nature, its simplicity and complexity.
I paint intuitively, injecting it with my own sensitive response; interacting with the medium to connect with the ever-changing energy of the coast.
The painting is of Porthmeor Beach, St Ives, Cornwall in the winter, when the thunderous sky was spectacular. It was raining icy hail out at sea, however, patches of blue sky optimistically peeked through.
