Norman Ackroyd - British

Great Blasket, Etching, 20 x 19 cm


Study of Sun and Rain, Skellig Rock

These are etchings, not oil paintings, but they are a good example of the importance of abstract, poetic qualities, and mood, in seascape painting, rather than mere literal representation. The Judd Waugh oil painting on the side bar to the right, also shows that a limited palette, almost monochrome, can make a very strong image.
