Jill Tattersall. Looking from the Cliff.
Looking from the cliff.
Mixed media on handmade paper (water-based paints, pigments and dyes plus Sussex cliff chalk, with silver leaf on specially-made cotton paper)
A piece about looking as much as seeing. Neuroscience tells us that watching the waves slows our heartbeat and induces a meditational state. I hope this painting catches the moment when your mind starts to freewheel and you lose the sense of time as you sense the motion and power of the sea even in fairly calm weather.
