October Light, Duckpool

October Light, Duckpool is my largest commission to date at 140 x 90 cm. It is painted in acrylics on a handmade linen canvas frame. I love painting big and this allowed me so much freedom.

The brief was to have an element of Duckpool that reflected the light of a beautiful day in October. This is one my client’s  favourite beaches.  My aim was to give the painting drama by incorporating a large wave.  With the light behind it, it has a lovely translucent feel whilst retaining the drama of a wave crashing on the rocks and stones.

The story of this painting is written here in a recent blogpost
