An investment piece! A beautifully evocative coastal scene, showing the rock pools and cliffs of a beach at low tide. There is a wonderful contrast between light and dark making it a bolder piece of art. This reminds me of my favourite beach in Cornwall but this is most likely the North East coast.
Born in Australia in 1937, Carlisle caught a tramp steamer to London at the age of 21 and after a brief period in Scotland and Newcastle, (think Pitman painters!) he moved to Gordon Square at the heart of Bloomsbury. He studied at the University College London School of Oriental and African Studies and perfected his techniques. he exhibited at Mall Galleries in St James and the New England Art Club.
In retirement he moved back to Blyth in Northumberland and continued painting. He died in 2019.
