Emerald Beach Wave II
Oil on canvas. Width 76 x Height 51cm or 30 x 20 inches. Signed. Unframed. With a certificate of authenticity.
Emerald Beach Wave II is inspired by the coastline of South Devon and Cornwall. It shows a large wave cresting, lit by the sun turning the waves emerald green and with yellow ochre shadows. The time of day is key here. It is midday and the sunlight is strong. The highlights become a mixture of greens and yellows contrasting with the pale blue sea in the background. The foreground shows white foam detail and sand churned up by the waves.
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.
