Emerald Ocean Wave original seascape oil painting on canvas. Width 100 cm x Height 50 cm or 19.5 x 31.5 inches. Signed. Unframed. With a certificate of authenticity. Free UK Shipping.
Emerald Ocean Wave is inspired by the seas around the South Devon and Cornish coastline. When the light is right and the sun comes through the waves, it lights up the water with an emerald glow. This painting shows an emerald green wave breaking. With a pale grey blue sea in the background and dark waves forming in the distance. The foreground shows sea foam coming up through the cresting wave.
I am an oil painter inspired by the energy of the seas. Studying film and fine art at the University of Plymouth has influenced the way I paint.It is important to me to include a sense of movement and escapism in my work. Having moved permanently to Devon 17 years ago, it is the Devon and Cornwall coastline that still inspire me. My seascape series of paintings have evolved over the years. I am keen to explore the force of the ocean, the light coming through the waves and the ever changing colour of the sea.
For my work I like to use oil paint. This medium is very versatile allowing you to add thick impasto layers or more fluid translucent ones. As a result this medium is ideal when you want to capture ocean waves in all their forms and variety of colours. Also it is such robust a medium I can scrape the paint back or scratch into it too for added texture.
I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art in 2008 at the University of Plymouth. I have exhibited my paintings throughout Devon and gained an award at the Exeter Short Film festival. My films and photographs have been exhibited on the South Bank, London and in Italy. I am a Geopark Ambassador Artist for the English Riviera UNESCO Global Geopark.
