Escape to the Big Blue Sea

Title: Escape to the Big Blue Sea
Description: Escape to the Big Blue Sea is a large blue under the sea oil painting with three fish swimming in formation. The fish are angel fish and they travel across a wide blue expanse of ocean beneath the turquoise rippling surface of the water which catches the light in small white sparkles. Below them you can see the light patterns on the rainbow coloured sand and in the distance a hint of coral reef. The idea behind this particular painting was prompted by the Corona virus lockdown which has left most of the world feeling a bit trapped. The three fish are freshwater fish and so have no business being in an ocean. However, one of the things I most like about painting is that you can alter reality as much as you want to. I have set them free as I hope we will be soon. Dedicated to everyone. It is 40x40x1.5 inches, white edges, deep edge canvas, ready to hang, no frame needed.

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.
