Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

This unique artwork is the third of a series of three paintings inspired by the wondrous aqua hues of the ocean, and explores my response to the movement and dynamic energy of the waves, trying to capture a moment of this ever-changing environment.

A life-long fascination with the ocean and travel makes far-away islands top of my list, with the opportunity to create paintings of these special adventures! Sitting on the beach I have endlessly watched and studied the waves, creating many sketches and studies of the sea. Back in my studio I have developed these studies into new compositions working with my visual memory and emotional response to create work with an abstract feel. The final painting is developed with sweeping palette knife strokes, scribing into wet paint, building layers and texture to create depth and vibrancy, to express movement in this wave-inspired work.

The perfect gift for someone special - birthday or Christmas! This painting is from my Ready-to-Hang collection offered for sale on-line EXCLUSIVELY on Artfinder, offering the opportunity to buy original art at an affordable price.
