Beach Waves original seascape oil painting on canvas. Width 61 cm x Height 61 cm or 24 x 24 inches. Signed. Unframed. With a certificate of authenticity. Free UK Shipping.

Beach Waves is inspired by the coastline of South Devon and Cornwall. It reminds me of a particular visit to Watergate Bay where the sea was a beautiful teal green colour and the waves were cresting lit by a bright midday sun. We stopped for lunch at at the Beach Hut cafe right on the beach and had a delicious meal whilst looking out towards the sea and the surfers.

This painting shows several waves breaking onto the pale yellow sandy beach. The highlights in the painting are mixture of pale yellow green with deep blue green in the shadows contrasting with a cerulean blue sky. The foreground shows tufts of seagrass framing the beach.

Inspiration

I am an oil painter inspired by the energy of the seas. Studying film and fine art at the University of Plymouth has influenced the way I paint. It is important to me to include a sense of movement and escapism in my work. Having moved permanently to Devon 17 years ago, it is the Devon and Cornwall coastline that still inspire me today.

My seascape series of paintings have evolved over the years. I am keen to explore the force of the ocean, the light coming through the waves and the ever changing colour of the sea.

For my work I like to use oil paint. This medium is very versatile allowing you to add thick impasto layers or more fluid translucent ones. As a result this medium is very useful when you want to capture ocean waves in all their forms and variety of colours. Also it is such robust a medium I can scrape the paint back or scratch into it too for added texture.

Background

I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art in 2008 at the University of Plymouth. I have exhibited my paintings throughout Devon and gained an award at the Exeter Short Film festival. My films and photographs have been exhibited on the South Bank, London and in Italy. I am a Geopark Ambassador Artist for the English Riviera UNESCO Global Geopark.
