Ocean Beach IV Giclée Fine Art Print
Ocean Beach IV Giclée Print is printed on Hahnemüle Pearl paper which has a smooth orange peel texture and a bright neutral white base. It creates really natural black and white images and offers vibrant colour reproduction and great detail too. The paper is resin coated with a fibrous feel. The satin finish of the resin coating gives depth to the image; which combined with the texture and vibrant colour reproduction give the image the feel of an oil painting. This is one of the most suitable of the Giclée Art Paper range for mounting.
This print is taken from an original oil painting, one of the wave painting series. The wave series has evolved into a collection. The beaches of the South Devon coastline and Cornwall have inspired this painting. I love taking long walks there, a particular favourite is Perranporth beach in North Cornwall.
Being based in Teignmouth means I am close to the south west coastline and Dartmoor which influences my work. I often return to the work of Kurt Jackson and Peter Doig for inspiration and a sense of place.
I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art in 2008 at the University of Plymouth. My paintings have been exhibited throughout Devon and I gained an award at the Exeter Short Film festival.
