Spark: eighteen

A series about people that have influenced my creative path

Eric Ravilious; South Coast Beach, 1939-1942, watercolour

We’ve been away for a long weekend – hence the lack of posts. The last four days have been spent campervanning along the north Aberdeen and Moray coasts – just wonderful.
I saw these WWII coastal defences along Burghead beach and they reminded me of two things… firstly the ‘tank stoppers’ that used to be on the beach where I grew up; and secondly of this picture by Eric Ravilious (1903-1942). I’ve long been an admirer of his work and I was pleasantly surprised to see some of his pieces in the Aberdeen Art Gallery on my first visit after we moved here. I’ve been there again this morning for another peek.
