With acrylic on canvas British Naïve artist Kerry Shearer has brought her own unique interpretation of this special coastal village. You may have heard the term Stargazy before in reference to a local delicacy but here the intricate small details bring you delectable image in this wonderful contemporary artwork.
Contrasts of light and dark in the painting are what make the image work so beautifully. There is a clear conversation between the deepest navy blue sky and the glittering whites of the stars and moon. All reflected onto the cottages in this cosy coastal scene.
Pin-point shocks of pink carefully manoeuvre your eye around the painting. You can appreciate all the tiny details of the buildings and flora in their carefully choreographed glory.
The play of shadow and light creates a soft glow all around the surface of the image. The dance of tiny paint splashes in contrasting colours for the sea reflect the starlight sparkling on the tranquil water’s surface.
You can imagine underneath the subtle layers of paint on the canvas lies the secrets held by those residing in each of the buildings. The narrative of the picture is one of a safe haven for the residents collectively smiling at the beauty and tranquility of the space in which they live.
