“Turquoise Wave IV”

Oil on canvas. Width 80 x Height 80 cm or 31.5 x  31.5 inches. Signed. Framed in a white stained wooden frame. With a certificate of authenticity. Ready to hang

“Turquoise Wave IV” is inspired by the coastline of Devon and Cornwall. It shows a large wave cresting, lit by the sun turning the waves turquoise. The time of day is key here. It is midday, the strong sunlight is reflecting off the sea and through the waves. 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 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.
