Portfolio: Sea Paintings

Sea paintings evolved out of experimentation with working in the sea: it took me a long time to work out what I was doing. The paintings are not visual representations of the sea, but visceral expressions of it.  Every painting is unique and captures the natural environment through the unpredictable and unceasing chaotic movement of the waves - and my own energy in working with the water, a very wet canvas and the colours.  The end result is abstract and vibrant, with subtleties of change caused by the melding of waves and colours which reflect the sea itself.
