Contemporary art seascape paintings by Timothy Gent

  1. 1. Painting the sea:Beauty of the shoreEver changing, every beach scene is different from before.Growing up in a seaside town, in hindsight, I supposeI took it for granted.The beach was just part of growing up, part of the back-ground scenery of my childhood.Those glowing sunsets over vast skies, the line of dancing,twinkling sea. Out of reach but holding a promise ofreturn tomorrow.Roaming space, space to think and space to breathe.On return from bustling cities and far flung places, thebeach whispers it’s reminder to look, listen and to feel...
  2. 2. “I saw from the beach, when the morning was shining, A bark o’er the waters move gloriously on; I came when the sun o’er that beach was declining, The bark was still there, but the waters were gone.” From ‘I Saw From the Beach’ by Thomas Moore The seashore delights with it’s unique light, weather and the tide. The varied seasons and sea conditions can bring beautiful and dramatic views to paint. Return the following day and it is never the same, traces of yesterday’s events washed clean by the sea. A seascape experienced and painted by the artist is a reflection of our natural world.From the dunes, St Annes-on-sea A lasting reminder of nature found and expressed in paint.
