Neil paints his emotional response to the dramatic coastline and sea, with the underlying history of the journeys made, and of those ships and people that didn’t quite make it to this land, girt by sea. These seascapes are timeless. Standing on the beaches or cliff tops you can pause and imagine oceans past, and be reminded that we are part of something continuous.
