“Emerald Wave II” is the latest in a series of paintings examining long exposure photographic images; and evolving them into a painting. I work with oils because of their flexibility. Oils can give you a translucent effect for fast flowing water or a matt and flatter finish for the spray. I was particularly captured by the light in this picture. It had given the water a yellow glow and highlighted the emerald green of the wave crashing; contrasting with the deep indigo blue shadows.

I am a Teignmouth based artist and live close to the ocean and Dartmoor. This proximity to the South West Coast and the wild untamed landscape of the moor has influenced my recent work. Water is an ever-changing element that I find fascinating. In my oil paintings I aim to invoke an immersive feeling. I want to highlight the rapidly shifting colours of water from deep blue almost black to pale green nearly white. Following the initial painting and drying process I may apply glazes of oil paint to further enrich the surface of my work. I often return to the work of Kurt Jackson and Peter Doig for inspiration and a sense of place.

“Emerald Wave II” giclée print print is available in various sizes on Hahnemüle Pearl paper.
