This painting is part of a collection of shell paintings inspired by the north-east coast. It features the vibrant Herd Groyne Lighthouse found in the mouth of the River Tyne in South Shields. I wanted this piece to celebrate the beauty of the north-east coast with the bold colour of the lighthouse contrasting the colours of its natural surroundings.
