The emphasis here was on light and dark. A little light is filtering through the wave next to the strongly lit spray framing the dark wave underneath.
"Curling light" is painted in a realistic yet expressionistic manner, weaving together these styles to form a dynamic painting of the sea. My aim is to capture the essence of the subject while "putting myself" into the work to form an image that is its own signature of the artist.
Movement is a very important part of my work, balancing line, colour, tone and detail, subtlety with obvious intention to leave certain marks or lines, to celebrate the painting as an image created by the application of paint.
