The Needles Isle of Wight Painted by Frank Callaghan. Oil on Canvas (14 inches x 14 inches) (Unframed) This painting represents a test for me. I have never before attempted to paint so much sea or such detailed rock formation. I often paint seascapes, but usually, these only have glimpses of the the briny. Please let me know how you think I have done. This is one of my favourite places, whether viewed from The Mainland, The Island or The Solent in a boat. This view is from The Old Battery.
