An abstract/impressionistic oil seascape.
I tried to capture the feeling of the quiet solitude that you have on a beach while ironically being surrounded by lots of people. I wanted the colour to impact the viewer whilst also having the opportunity to glance into a detailed scene up close.
I am painting a series of works on wooden panels to see how the smooth surface reacts to my brush strokes. The effect creates a wonderful sheen which lends itself well to the effect of painted water.
The final painting has a white glossed edge to give the effect of a frame helping the image to stand out.
