Graham Kay     . . town and landscape artist

A warm welcome to this website!


In my painting I have constantly thrilled to the magic of that ever changing light and mood in the landscape. It seems at times that the only reason for our existence might be to act as a witness and an audience to the work of nature all round us. As an artist I simply want to capture some of that excitement in my work and to share it with others.


So please have a browse through the galleries and enjoy.

PAINTING IN THE SPOTLIGHT

“QUIET MORNING, HESWALL SHORE”

This painting is a return to a scene I painted some time ago. I wanted to portray that same morning using much simplified brushwork. The treatment of the land and boats is far less detailed and hopefully adds to the quiet, serene mood which is so typical of this shore line. I have also tried to emphasise the broad horizontal sweeps to give that feeling of a placid stillness and calm.
