THE DONUT

£4,400.00Price

‘The Donut’ is painted using oil and acrylic on canvas. It is a large painting on an artist’s high quality Windsor and Newton stretcher which is warp resistant.

 

The painting is made using large brushstrokes and the texture of the paint and brush marks are visible on the surface of the canvas.

 

Living beside the sea was always a childhood dream for me. Family trips to Brighton would fill me with delight – the sounds, the smells, the colours, the neon lights, vintage kitsch and the smells all so enticing.

 

It’s a theme I’ve returned to time and time again and finally found myself settled on the coast not far from Brighton.

The i360 or ‘The Donut’ as it’s affectionately known by the locals for some time now, is somewhere I’ve wanted to paint for a while. It strikes out huge amongst the Regency skyline and lights up the seafront. Its proportions are grand and ambitious and like the Pier and engineering feats of the Victorians I think I wanted to feature this in a painting.

 

Brighton is a city full of life. The action on the seafront as people walk their dogs, meet for a coffee, go down to paly volleyball or shoot some hoops makes it an exciting place to live and I wanted to capture this in my painting.
