Turquoise Beach II is inspired by the coastline of South Devon and North Cornwall. This particular painting shows a large turquoise waves breaking onto the sandy beach. The sky is cerulean blue with white wispy clouds. The light coming through the cresting wave is a combination of turquoise and teal green. The deep shadow of the wave is a mixture of viridian green, indigo blue and oxide yellow. The foreground shows sea-foam rising up and under the waves with the sandy beach wet with sea foam.
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. This is another in my series of wave paintings which I started many years ago.
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.
