    Thats very powerful.

  • Thanks. I used to be a member of a local art group on the south coast of England and was stunned by all the picture postcard images of our quaint little town in the summer.

    The little seaside town only ever looks like a chocolate box for about 2 weeks a year. I submitted this to their annual exhibition and they hated it.

    I got soaked trying to paint this. I gave up with an easel and canvas as the wind blew it to somewhere in Scandinavia, so took a quick photo instead and legged it back to my studio with wet feet before the next wave came crashing in.
