I took a photo through the car window a few weeks ago as my partner and I were driving through Monkton. I took the picture because I loved the blinding white colour of the sea in the distance, and I thought it would look great as a painting.

I don’t think I’ve ever painted anything with such limited colour and subject, but I really enjoyed working on this little canvas, and the bright white of the sea is great, but it was the subtle ultramarine blue shades on the cottage that really made my day with this one.
