Specialising in Seascapes, Nottingham born artist Darren Stevenson has been known to spend hours in rain or shine sitting static to finish his pieces. His use of oil and sandpaper give his pieces, like this one, a great textual quality that perfectly embodies the harsh, volatile and sometimes savage beauty of nature in extreme weather conditions. His wistful brushstrokes give his pieces not only a ferocious edge, due to the subject matter itself, but also showcase the wonderful romance of nature.

Raging Under SpinnakersAcrylic on box canvas, 70cm sq
Combining her two great loves of art and sailing, self taught artist Jan Nelson’s work encompasses the spirit and nature of sailing with her use of thick layers of paint allowing her pieces to catch the light and have a wonderfully hidden textural depth. Her vibrant use of colour with this piece gives it a beautifully abstract quality whilst still retaining its initial voyeuristic quality of sailing along choppy waters.
The RaceAcrylic on box canvas, 70cm sq
Jan Nelson’s love of sailing is apparent throughout her collection of self taught pieces. However, it’s her exploration of colour that really sets her apart as an artist. For this piece in particular, the use of deep blues and greens evoke a slightly darker feeling image, of choppier waters and restless nature.
