Holy Island


I got carried away painting Holy Island recently, and am presently working on painting no.4. If the 4th works out well, I may get a print done. Each time I've finished a painting of the island, I've been driven to paint a different version, whilst remaining quite similar compositionally. Its really just a change in atmosphere, whilst trying to improve and have a better understanding of the subject matter. It's unusual for me to repeat a theme like this, as it would normally drive me mad. I usually like to be done with a view, and move on to something else before I get bored. I think I'll stop at four for now, perhaps come back at a later date. Take a look at the website at www.jimedwardspaintings.com to see the different versions I've been working on.

i like that u did different versions, as they all have different mood attached, i think. i really like Holy Island 2. it reminds me of the summer time, either when night starts to set in but its still warm, or when the night starts to turn into day at like4 in the morning. really beautiful, and a nice set altogether.
