Starting Again - a solo fish under a blue ocean

Title: Starting Again - a solo fish under a blue ocean
Description: 40 x 40 x 1.5 inches large blue painting of an underwater seascape with a lone fish. The fish is swimming purposefully over the sandy seabed. Behind her is the deep blue water in the distance and above her the water rises to the aqua blues and turquoise colours near the surface of the water. Some of the sky can also be seen as well as gentle waves and lots of sparkles of light. On the surface of the seabed are the fleeting light patterns made by the sun as its beams are reflected around constantly by the movement of the restless water. The little tropical fish is happy in her space - intent on her own adventure in a big blue sea. I painted it as another in a series of lone fish paintings but each one is nevertheless different. This painting is for those people who are brave enough to go their own way despite what others may think. On deep edge canvas, white edges, no frame necessary.

Artist Biography:

I am a Sussex based artist who paints large original landscape paintings and seascape paintings in oil on canvas.

My art is painted mostly from memory after having visited somewhere beautiful and are an attempt to capture some of the essence of that place.

I gained a fine art degree from Brighton in 1983 and began my painting career as a portraitist and muralist. However, sometime in the late 90’s, after painting my 200th labrador, I realised I was crushingly bored and needed to develop my own painting style and began to paint landscapes and seascapes for my own amusement.

I am inspired by the patterns and movements of nature and animals and eventually developed a painting style that combines traditional painting techniques with more abstract and contemporary techniques.

My artworks evolve from simple ideas, usually after I have taken a walk somewhere. They are expressionistic, impressionist, art deco, art nouveau and something possibly unique to me in the feeling they evoke.

I like to think that paintings have ‘little souls’ woven into them by artist’s and that these are what call to a viewer (or not as the case may be) and give a painting presence and desirability.

My goal is to one day paint a place so beautiful I will disappear into it and never be seen again and to create worlds where others can do the same – even if only for a little while.
