Surf is inspired by the South Devon Coastline. I admire those who take on giant waves there. For inspiration I take photos of waves and sketch on the beach.
This is a very textured painting. The thick paint layers are applied with a pallet knife. Whilst the thinner layers are applied using various sizes of brushes to enable a translucent finish. Above all it is the light coming through the waves and ever-changing colour of the sea that I am keen to explore.
I like to work in oils because of their versatility. Due to the fact I can layer the paint so that it has a translucency. But also it is so robust a medium I can scrape the paint back or scratch into it too.
I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art in 2008 at the University of Plymouth.
