'The Oglet Shore, Looking Towards Liverpool' is one of my latest paintings, depicting scenes along the River Mersey, Liverpool.

On a glorious, sunny day I strolled down from Hale Village to the coastline to view the lighthouse.

This painting is based on a photo that I took on that lovely, hot, sunshine day with the haze from the sun distilling the distant view. It brings back memories of the sounds of the birdsong in the air, the smell of the grass and the movement of the river.

I used a variety of makes of oil paints to produce this piece of work, including Sennelier, Rembrandt, and Winsor & Newton. I applied the paint using knives and brushes on 6" x 9" Clairefontaine specialist paper for oils.

I used painting knives and brushes to apply and scrape into the paint, thereby creating different textures within the painting.
