New Wave

Part of my 2021 New Wave Seascape series, in square format, designed for the front cover of Pittwater Life magazine. The series is a first, that I have seen, in terms of style. With long flowing brushstrokes I flood the scene with movement and then balance that with smooth areas of photo realism to transition the landscape, or seascape, into a surreal oil painting with the WOW factor. This new impressionist style of art encourage that "in and out of reality" daydream feeling. So it's a visual escape into the mind.

To create the long smooth lines that give this work its distinctive appearance the paint needs to be thin to flow through the brush. To achieve the desired saturation and depth of colour, the work needs to be built up in many layers with drying between each layer. So a painting can take 3 months to complete. Attention has been paid to the balance of light and dark (The Notan). That, coupled with startling colour harmony and thoughtful composition will provide generations of enjoyment from this beautiful inspiring, and now famous, series of unique and powerful artworks.

Finding Diamonds is a commissioned work and the preliminary design was published on the front cover of Pittwater Life in November 2020. Barrenjoey Dreamtime, in this series, was published on the front cover of Pittwater Life  April 2021 and purchased on the first day of publication.
