Ocean Waves III is inspired by the sunsets on the coastline of South Devon and Cornwall. It shows a large waves cresting, lit by a fading sun turning the waves a vivid emerald green. The time of day is key here. It is very late afternoon, the light is fading fast. The highlights become a mixture of deep greens and blues contrasting with the deep blue of the sea.
I like to work in oils because of their versatility. You can layer the paint so that it has a translucency. It is so robust a medium I can scrape the paint back or scratch into it too. This is another in my series of wave paintings which I started 5 years ago and numbering 50.
