Winter Surf Giclée Archival Print
Seascape giclée archival print on fine art paper using measuring width 60cm x Height 30cm with a white boarder of 4cm.
Winter Surf Giclée Print is based on an original oil painting in my wave series. It shows crashing ocean waves in many shades of green from emerald to the palest yellow green hue. 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.
The original painting has lots of texture to it with layers and layers of paint, both translucent and opaque. I hope to make the view feel immersed in the image as though they were surfing. I like to paint in oils because of their flexibility to alter the image whilst working and their depth of field achieved with the layering of paint. Most of my work is inspired by the sea with its ever changing shapes and hues.
is the term used to describe fine art reproductions of museum quality. Using the finest quality papers and inks designed to resist color fading, drawings and paintings are reproduced using a fine art printer with exceptionally high resolution.
The word Giclée (“g-clay”),
is derived from the French verb gicler meaning “to squirt or spray”, Giclee, is used to describe a fine art digital printing process combining pigment based inks with high quality archival quality paper to achieve Giclée prints of superior archival quality, light fastness and stability.
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.
