Nestled in Coombe Valley, a timeless place where history has left its mark in the footsteps of Hawker and although it is often open to the vagaries of the weather and storms, there is often a calm too, especially at dawn and dusk.
This wasn't painted on location due to the size. From the initial idea to finishing took 6 months. There was a lot of pondering and consideration for the place and memories of being there, but also the 'feeling of the place and ' liminal space'.
The ethereal space of nothing, the air between land and sky and sea and coast. For me, a place to gaze, let the senses feel and expand the mind. A place where ' we dare to dream'.
Painted in mixed media on a bespoke heavy linen canvas. The wave is lit by moonlight that is suggested in the sky. There are a lot of colours in the darker areas. The top left has a distant landscape and the foreground lots of texture and colour in the depths.
The painting is finished in a soft varnish which has been professionally applied for protection and soft sheen.
It measures 210 cm x 110 cm and in set in a grey tray frame with a very slim profile.
There is also a very limited print run of 100cm giclee paper prints available here.
Photos in situ with the frame.
