The Importance of Consistency

Sometimes you get tired of painting in the same old way. One sunny beach scene after another, exploring every little nuance of a great day out.
Then you fly away from what is the core of your artwork and do something really mad and not at all how you usually paint . It's fun and opens up new avenues.
And then all of a sudden you realise that you've just got to get back to the job in hand and a beach scene calls, fresh as a summer's day, the smell of the sea on a gentle breeze and you can hear the children calling and a few sea gulls, and off you go into the world of blue skies and golden sands. There's this drawing I did of  a family amongst the rocks, and of course people walking out of the sea.
New beginnings.
