Jetty series

In these paintings the subject is a small jetty in a creek, Newtown Creek, on the Isle of Wight.

Dick experienced this jetty several times, while sailing with friends in the Solent and IOW. This creek is an evocative place, and from this viewpoint, it is not obvious how the different bodies of water are connected with each other.

The first painting is clearly a landscape, and shows a view of the jetty at low water.This painting made use of evidence of various kinds, including memories, and an old photograph taken several years ago. The composition was worked out using drawings. Some of the original underpainting in acrylic shows through in places. The other two are less figurative.
