Original painting in oil on canvas.
"Warm light floods Whitstable harbour as the tide ebbs out. This oil painting highlights the jumble of sparking rigging and draws a contrast with the calming stillness of the reflections below."
The paintings of Johnny Morant are beautifully conceived, figurative forms which generate a dream-like pliancy. The use of pastel, soporific colouring contrasted with deep flesh tones and warm shadows allude to a sensation of an encompassing light. The figure, whose gaze always eludes us, dissipates into the background releasing the form into new dimensions of space.
