Turquoise Ocean Wave is inspired by the surfing waves of the North Cornwall coastline. It shows a turquoise large wave cresting. There is no frame as the image continues round the edges of the deep canvas.
Using many shades of turquoise blue to create this wave painting. The highlights are a very pale yellow merging into white and the shadows are a deep indigo blue painting. It has lots of texture with layers and layers of paint, both translucent and opaque. I hope to make the view feel immersed in the image as though they were there.
I like to paint in oils because of their flexibility to alter the image whilst working and their depth of field achieved with the layering of paint. Most of my work is inspired by the sea with its ever changing shapes and hues.
I am a Teignmouth based artist and live close to the ocean and Dartmoor. This proximity to the South West Coast and the wild untamed landscape of the moor has influenced my recent work.
I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art in 2008 at the University of Plymouth. I am a member of the Devon Artist Network and a Geopark Ambassador Artist for the English Riviera UNESCO Global Geopark.
