Tom is a master in his use of oil paint, producing wonderfully observed landscapes in a loose, impressionist manner. In this film he takes his paints to the Somme Estuary in Northern France, where he explores a wealth of subject matter.
These include weekend crowds promenading by a river, estuaries and beaches - even an old fashioned carrousel. Tom works quickly on the spot using a small oil pochade, returning to make bigger paintings of the subjects that particularly appeal to him or using these small paintings to work up into large canvases in his studio.
This is the second in a trilogy of films with Tom Coates and follows the highly successful FIGURES IN PASTEL, also produced by APV Films. Run time 60 min. DVD in NTSC format for North America.
