Here’s a view out to sea from Guernsey’s beautiful south cliffs. I had just finished a quite detailed rocky cleft with Sea Pink as a response to a long winter, and I wanted to paint something else sunny and marine – this typical view is the result. A sea of lapis lazuli rolls in and breaks hard against dark rocks. In the foreground, there is desiccated gorse (furze) and the seed spikes of sorrel and dock.

I wanted to keep the painting fresh and luminous, without getting involved with the detail of the previous painting. I think this is splendidly bright, and the sea reminds me happily of the real thing.
