This small painting is from my 'Coded Light' series.
I began this series by walking the coast path near my home in Pembrokeshire 'absorbing' observations and emotions that were often unleashed in the process of being out in the elements.
Back in the studio, as I engaged with the physicality of painting, these observations became more expressive. Simultaneously a visual language or ‘code’ emerged allowing me to vent my internal thoughts and feelings.
This small painting carries the gravity of a larger piece. The light effects of stormy weather which create a 'greenish' dark tinge on this beach scene. It the conjures the emotions of envy and longing.
