“Ocean Beach” tropical seascape oil painting on canvas


Catherine Kennedy


“Ocean Beach”

Oil on canvas. Width 100 x Height 70cm or 39.5 x  27.5 inches. Signed. Unframed. With a certificate of authenticity.

“Ocean Beach” is inspired by the coastline of south Devon. I want the viewer to feel they can walk across the sand in this painting.  It shows a large wave cresting,  lit by the sun turning the waves turquoise and 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 emeralds 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 48.

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.
