The Whispering Breeze
This is one of a series of original oil paintings inspired by my visual memories and sketches of a unique stretch of Cornish coastline, Sennen Cove. Sitting in the dunes above the beach, mesmerised by the early evening sunlight dancing on the water, watching the silhouetted surfers paddle out amongst the waves. Responding to the landscape, I can feel the soft sand under foot and the dune grasses brushing and swaying in the sea breeze, evoking a calming sentiment to savour in this contemplative piece.
The painting is developed with expressive palette knife strokes, with layers and texture to create depth and vibrancy. I seek to capture the essence of that moment in nature.
Executed with Winsor & Newton professional oil paints on high quality stretched canvas, with universal primer, and with softwood stretchers. Canvas size is 80 x 60 cm with edges of 4.5 cm depth. The image is extended on the sides of the canvas creating a 3-D effect. The canvas is signed on both the front and the back, and there are 2 D-rings attached to each side of the softwood stretchers strung with strong cord so that this work is READY TO HANG to sit flush against the wall, with no need for any further framing, offering a contemporary finish to the artwork.

We’ve visited Sue’s beautiful studio fairly regularly when we happened upon our latest piece. We were struck by the composition and it’s eventual completion. Sue spent a lot of time talking about the painting, as well as where we were going to hang it to maximise the light quality - even suggesting we take it home to be sure! Her passion is very apparent and we are delighted to have more than one piece in the family.
I’m absolutely thrilled with my new painting from Sue, something I’ve aspired to own for some time and I couldn’t be happier. Sue was a delight, she took time to understand where the painting would hang and provided valuable guidance in helping me select my piece. Visiting her beautiful studio was a particular treat. I can’t wait to add to my collection.
It was lovely to meet you on Saturday and see your beautiful work. “Violet Meadows” has been given pride of place on our lounge wall! Thank you so much for allowing us to see it in our house before finally deciding to buy and for helping us to choose the right picture.
The painting has arrived safely and is every bit as beautiful as I had hoped! Thank you so much. When we decide where to hang it I will send you a photo. We love our new painting!
I have always admired Sue’s style of art. I love the feeling of calm and natural freshness that Sue’s paintings convey and enjoy keeping up-to-date with her new work. We love the vibrancy of our painting and the beautiful way it has been framed, really sets it apart. We will most certainly be adding to our collection very soon.
