About the project

Inspired by Holkham – No. 2


Artist – Nial W. Adams – 2016

Medium – Oil on Canvas Panel

Size – 22″ x 18″ Landscape

Description –

Walking the North Norfolk coast at Holkham is something so many of us love. It has inspired artists, photographers and writers for many years.

Holkham is a well-known location, being the most famous country estate in Norfolk after Royal Sandringham and the seat of the Coke family.

In particular Holkham beach with its vast expanse at low water is a firm favourite with holiday makers, locals and everyone who loves nature and the great outdoors.

This is a modest painting, listed under the Small Works Section of my Portfolio. Presented on canvas panel this was painting I needed to complete in one go, painting Alla Prima, or ‘all at once’. This captures the fresh brushstrokes and mood of the artist.

Rolling clouds and tidal water feature in this original oil painting. Ideally suited for a small wall, perhaps as a reminder of great holidays in Norfolk.

This original landscape oil painting is presented unframed, with various framing options available. If you are interested in this theme but on a larger scale, please ask me about commissioning a work based on this piece.

NB. A short time-lapse video of some of the painting stages of this piece can be viewed here – please look for videos on this page.
