Description –

Castles on the Beach – Holkham Skies. One of Norfolk’s most loved and famous places has to be Holkham Beach on the North Norfolk coast.

A firm favourite with photographers and artists, this piece of wonderful coastline lies within the historic estate of Holkham Hall. Loved for the wide expanse of beach that appears at low tide, presenting amazing vistas and truly big Norfolk skies!

This large painting captures the immense drama of Summer skies over the beach, when enormous cloud formations roll across the horizon creating great castles on the beach.

Produced as a Signature Piece this artwork has been hand prepared by the artist on stretched fine Irish Linen. This process requires a number of steps and many hours before the canvas is ready to paint on. Irish Linen is chosen because of the fine weave and stability. Produced to archival standards, following the traditional techniques of the Old Masters, this creates a legacy artwork for future generations.

One of Nial’s largest works of art, this painting is 4′ x 3′ on deep-edge canvas is ready to hang. Ideal as a feature piece in a large room, office or business setting.

This original painting is current available to view, by appointment, at Nial’s Studio in Hevingham, Norfolk. Please call 01603 755 480 if you would like to arrange a private viewing of this, and/or other artworks by the artist.
