Emerald Wave II
Oil on canvas. Width 76 x Height 51cm or 30 x 20 inches. Signed. Unframed. With a certificate of authenticity.
Emerald 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 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.
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.
In conclusion, I am a member of the Devon Artist Network where you can see more of my work here https://www.devonartistnetwork.co.uk/catherine-kennedy-1 and a Geopark Ambassador Artist for the English Riviera UNESCO Global Geopark.
