Latest painting 'Ground Sea and Seaweed'

Another re-worked painting, which in this case involved turning the canvas upside down and incorporating what had previously been 'sky'into the glow at the base of the surf breaking on the sand! 

I'd recently witnessed similar conditions, when turbulence and undertow beneath the surface give an illusion of calm between the formation of increasingly large swells - and clumps of seaweed which have been torn from the rocks are rolled and pulled up into the waves before being flung ashore.

Now exhibited at Art Space Gallery, St Ives.

'Ground Sea and Seaweed' acrylic/oil on canvas, white wood frame, 79 x 64 x 5 cm.  SOLD

  3. I like that a lot! I can really feel those big deceptively calm heaves of the sea, which then crash on the shore with a wicked backwash!

    1. Hi Gilly, how are you? Thanks for the comment. There have been some spectacular waves crashing onto Porthmeor Beach over the past few days! Lesley x
