About The Artwork

This piece was inspired by a small fisherman's shelter, harbour and public beach that my wife and I spent a few days at with our RV, on the North coast of Cyprus in Summer 2017. The shelter was a hive of activity during the day with fishermen, other boat owners and local beach-goers, but the evenings and nights were silent and serene, we being the only inhabitants. I wanted to capture the peace, tranquility and wild beauty of the early evening, whilst conveying the presence of mankind. As with many of my works I wanted the piece to be about how my mind remembered it - how it made me feel to be there - rather than how it actually was, so that it has an emotional, rather than a physical aspect. The grey-scale portion represents the fading light of the old day, whilst the tinted sky exudes the hope of a bright and happy tomorrow. Unframed, drawn using a combination of Derwent and Faber-Castell water-soluble pencils on 25% cotton cold press 140 lb watercolour paper.

Duncan Gooding is a British artist, specialising in pastel, Graphite and watercolour pencil art. He was born in Somerset, England, but has spent most of his adult life in Germany and on the island of Cyprus, the latter of which he has lived on for over 15 years. Duncan considers his work to be inspired by his various interests, his surroundings and life in general. He has no formal art training or education and has a unique style which he is continually exploring and developing. Although Duncan is best known for his watercolour pencil representations, he has also, in the past, expressed himself in many other mediums, including watercolour, pastels and oils. Over the past 40 years, Duncan has created cartoons and illustrations for local magazines, advertisements for private clubs and events, presentation pieces - mostly while he was serving in the British Army - and has been commissioned for other private work represented in several private collections in the United States, the United Kingdom and mainland Europe - some under his previous moniker "Dunk". Where possible, he hides a small fairy in his works, giving his representations an element of both real and fantasy. Duncan's hope is that his artwork will bring pleasure to those who view it.
