Surf II is inspired by the South Devon Coastline. I admire those who take on giant waves there. For inspiration I take photos of waves and sketch on the beach.

This is a very textured painting. The thick paint layers are applied with a pallet knife. Whilst the thinner layers are applied using various sizes of brushes to enable a translucent finish. The light coming through the waves and also the ever-changing colour of the sea is what I am keen to explore.


Unlike other mediums that dry quickly, oil paint has a slow-drying time, giving me the freedom to blend and mix colours for an extended period. This allows for greater control over the final outcome of my artwork, as every brushstroke can be manipulated and perfected until it reaches my desired effect. This is especially beneficial for creating my wave paintings, where subtle nuances in colour and texture can make all the difference.

But perhaps the most significant reason why oil paint is my chosen medium is its ability to adapt to any style and subject matter. Its versatility allows me to switch between techniques, from thick impasto to smooth glazing, creating endless possibilities for my artwork.
