Emerald Beach III original seascape oil painting on canvas. Width 90 cm x Height 60cm or 35.5 x 23.5 inches. Signed. Unframed. With a certificate of authenticity. Free UK Shipping.
Emerald Beach III is inspired by the coastline of South Devon and Cornwall. It show a large emerald green wave breaking onto a sandy beach. The sky is cerulean blue and the sea is a deep indigo blue. The light coming through the cresting wave is a combination of emerald and viridian green. The deep shadow of the wave is a mixture of viridian green, indigo and ultramarine blue mixed with a hint of alizarin crimson. The foreground shows sea-foam rising up and under the waves with the pink and yellow sand on the beach.
I like to work in oils because of their versatility. You can layer the paint so that it has a translucency. Also It is so robust a medium I can scrape the paint back or scratch into it too. This is another in my series of wave paintings which I started 5 years ago.
The terms sea green has many different colours this article is a good insight into this varied colour.
I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art in 2008 at the University of Plymouth. My exhibitions have been throughout Devon and one of my films was been exhibited at the South Bank, London and in Italy. I am a Teignmouth based artist.
