John's signature style, fitted into a smaller-than-usual deep canvas. No need for a frame! Foreground of swirling whirlpool mix of whites, green and blues, with a top half devoted to the action of the breaking wave. The wave is smooth to the top, and the impact of the crash involves spots of carefully placed white paint to create a captured sound. A strong horizon line in dark blue separates off the top third of the landscape canvas.
This painting was created in Northumberland. The coastline is beyond dramatic.
