“Ocean Waves” is inspired by the coastline of South Devon and Cornwall. It shows large waves cresting, lit by the sun turning the water turquoise and teal green. The time of day is key here. It is midday and the background show a hazy sun. The highlights in the painting are mixture of teal green and turquoise blue contrasting with the deep indigo 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. 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.

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