Waves Of Joy

 Kieron Williamson | Oil on Board | 18 x 36 inches 

About the painting:

“I was very kindly allowed to drop in on a photoshoot arranged by Simon Rudd from SJR Equine Photography. It was an idyllic morning in late July on a little beach near Happisburgh on the Norfolk Coast watching around half a dozen riders enjoying the morning on horseback. Is there a more joyful sight than seeing horses cantering along the shore? I hope that feeling conveys across in this painting. I felt it was important not to just daub the paint on to depict the moving water, but to actually put effort in to capture the interesting, abstract forms.” Kieron

The medium:

“The one medium that I have found the most challenging is oil. For years I knew absolutely nothing about this medium, despite having three introductory lessons at age six!

It is only through trial and error, coupled with extensive research online, that I have finally found a way of working that suits me.
If I had to use only one medium for the rest of my life, I would most definitely use oil. I love the historic importance of them, the rich smell of the paint and the fact that no matter what the subject, the medium is suitable … it is just so diverse.
I could use a glazing technique and my work could look flawless and soft with no visible brushstrokes, or heavy impasto layered on a canvas with a palette knife with paint straight from the tube. I love that fact that I can do absolutely anything with it, whatever the subject needs to be captured and whatever way I feel like working.” Kieron
