The influence of the sea

Even when the sea is out of sight here in Cornwall you can sense its presence because the light that it reflects creates an ambience that is unique, an ocean light. IN THE OCEAN LIGHT was the title I gave to an exhibition of mine in Falmouth a couple of years ago and a virtual tour of that show is one of several that you can explore here. As you will observe from these images, a clear horizontal element within the composition is one aspect of the sea's appeal for me and sometimes I'll use a title that reflects this fact. In general I like to under-state as far as the sea is concerned, finding that its subtler moods lend themselves more readily to the process of translation into the values of a painting. Most of the OCEAN LIGHT collection has now been sold and as always with me archival quality prints of these pieces are now available. Thumbnail picture links in my Seascape prints index will take you to single image pages about particular examples.

There are of course seascape paintings still available in the original as well. Signed unmounted prints of these, each with a voucher to the same value, can be ordered by clicking the small Paypal buttons at the foot of each of these pages. Click here for a full explanation of how this scheme works.

I like to think that the ocean light I referred to above is present in even the inland landscapes I do near my studio, for example in those to be found by browsing the LIVED-IN LANDSCAPES virtual tour. Certainly this special light from the sea finds its way into the festival paintings I've done to celebrate the events of Lafrowda day in far western town of St Just where I lived for nearly thirty years. Click here for an index of these and other pictures about cultural aspects of this extraordinary maritime environment. The sea is truly all pervasive in my art!
