“Ocean Beach III” is inspired by the coastline of South Devon and Cornwall. It shows a large wave cresting, lit by the sun turning the water turquoise and indigo blue. The time of day is key here. It is midday the wave is lit a bright sun and the sky is cerulean blue. The highlights in the painting are mixture of turquoise blue contrasting deep marine and indigo blue sea. The foreground shows sea-foam rising up and under the wave.

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 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.
