FAMOUS ARTISTS BIRTHDAY - WALTER RICHARD SICKERT – BESIDE THE SEA 1902 - MINI MASTER SERIES


BESIDE THE SEA 1902
Mini Master Painting by Sea Dean
4” x 4” Canvas Panel
Professional Acrylic with UV Protection

Purchase via Daily Paintworks

Part of the Mini Master series which honours the birthday of a Master Painter. I just squeaked this in under the deadline for blog posting. I'm enjoying working with muted colour mixes lately. The ocean doesn't show well in this image, but it has a lot of subtle colour shifts which will amaze you when you get it home. 

BESIDE THE SEA 1902 - Framed ($5 extra)
There is little opportunity to paint detail in a miniature, so I would also like to paint this again in a larger version, perhaps a 24" x 24" or 36" x 36" I would love to paint it for you if you would like to commission one, leave me a comment and I'll get back to you. I'm happy to work out a payment schedule that suits.
