Cresting Wave II

Original oil on board wave painting. Width 33 x Height 43 cm or 13 x 17 inches. Signed. Framed in a black floating frame and with a certificate of authenticity.

Cresting Wave II is inspired by the coastline of South Devon and Cornwall. It shows a large wave cresting, lit by the sun turning the waves blue and with indigo shadows. There is lots of texture to this painting with layers of thick and thin oil paint.

I like to work in oils because of their versatility. You can layer the paint so that it has a translucency. Also 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 over 50.

I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art in 2008 at the University of Plymouth. My exhibitions have been throughout Devon and one of my films was been exhibited at the South Bank, London and in Italy. I am a Teignmouth based artist.

In conclusion, I am a member of the Devon Artist Network where you can see more of my work here

Recently  I have been given the status of a Geopark Ambassador Artist for the English Riviera UNESCO Global Geopark.
