Rolling waves come tumbling in from the mumbles area of Swansea, waves out at sea were seen traveling at ninety degrees to the shore waves, very rough conditions! Here the sun is to the right of the composition lighting the waves and spray from the side.
“Winter sea at Swansea” 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.
