I had an idea to paint a picture expressing my utter bemusement with the art of erecting a deckchair and this is the result.
I often find that preparing for a trip down to the beach can actually be quite an arduous affair. There is a lot of stuff to remember to bring and quite a lot of awkward things to carry. When you have finally reached your destination you are quite frankly very deserving of your comfortable seat. The last thing you need is the hassle of figuring out how to put the darn thing up! Just to top it all, he managed to figure his out straight away and now looks so comfortable… a little help here please?!
I went for a different, more subtle palette of hues for this beach painting. I painted the row of houses on Elie’s South Street first and then took my colour ideas for everything else from them. I was trying to achieve a timeless quality to reflect the timelessness of deckchairs…although I must say I do prefer a more modern, easier to handle chair myself!
