Blackpool beach with figures



I wanted to get a feeling for the wide open spaces of the seafront at Blackpool. I liked the windblown sand in the foreground and wanted the painting to show how smooth it looked. Most of all I wanted to depict the mist that started to roll in from the sea, making the distant figures look somehow ethereal and ghostly. As I was painting, I was conscious of owing a debt of gratitude to David Cox, whose painting ‘Rhyl Sands’ is in the Tate Gallery.
