Needles From Hengistbury Head - oil painting
Hengistbury Head is featured in this painting done during May 2017. The location is on the 'spit' of land, near to the town of Christchurch in Dorset. In this coastal view we see the mixture of sand and tough grass that grows at such locations, with tyre tracks from bicycles snaking through the sand. In the distance and across Solent water are the 'needles' as featured on the coast of the Isle of Wight. It was painted and based on a photo taken on a sunny but cold December day.
The painting is done on stretched paper measuring 16” x 12” and is painted in oil paint.
The final painting can be seen here.
