Turquoise Beach Wave III is an original oil painting in my wave series. It shows a turquoise ocean wave cresting, in many shades of turquoise. With sea foam rising up under the wave and more sea foam swirling on the sandy beach. The beaches of the South Devon coastline and Cornwall have inspired this painting.
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.
Studying film and video art at the University of Plymouth has impacted on the way I paint. Creating a sense of movement and escapism in my work is important to me. If the viewer can feel they could walk across the sand or dive into the sea that is what I want to achieve.
