A6 signed limited-edition fine art giclée print
Gazing into a glassy barrel as it thunders down in a glorious arc of inky blues, turquoise and bleached white froth, this giclée print captures that special stillness inside a wave as it breaks.
The few seconds of perfection in a wave before tons of water collapse in on themselves is one of nature’s most magical moments, and something which has inspired thousands of artists before me. If I’m honest, the thought of encountering a wave like this fills me with dread (I’m no surfer!), but it’s the power and impending threat which I think adds to its majesty.
I created this one of my sea paintings during the strictest weeks of the first Corona Virus lockdown in 2020 – perhaps I was subconsciously looking for the freest subject of all to help escape my own confinement! I painted it in gouache in my sketchbook and had it replicated professionally as high quality giclée prints.
If you’re looking for seaside art to adorn your own walls, a gift for someone with a love of the ocean, or art for a holiday home by the sea, this print looks lovely mounted and framed in a white or pale wood frame. Please have a browse of my shop for more seaside paintings.
