70 x 70cm
Mixed media using acrylics, watercolours, pastels and gold leaf.

This colourful piece is based on a photo that I took a few years ago on the West Dorset coast, England. After watching my husband and daughter trying (and ultimately failing) to fish for crabs off a high pier, I turned around and noticed an amazingly satisfying composition for a photo with dark clouds rolling in and deep reflections on the water. Obviously I don't do photo-realism, but I really enjoyed doing this interpretation as it took me back to that day!

This original artwork uses a unique combination of acrylic and watercolour paints and pastels with gold leaf on a 3.5cm deep, gallery wrapped canvas. It is protected from dust and UV light by a thin layer of varnish. The sides are painted black, giving this artwork a highly contemporary finish. Framing is not required. The artwork is signed on the front and provided with a certificate of authenticity.

UPDATE - This piece is now available at Galería Juca Claret, Madrid, Spain

Esta obra de arte se basa en una foto que tomé hace unos años en la costa oeste de Dorset, Inglaterra. Después de ver mi marido y mi hija tratando (y no tener éxito) para pescar cangrejos de un muelle alto, me di la vuelta y noté una composición increíblemente satisfactorio para una foto con nubes oscuras rodando y profundas reflexiones sobre el agua. Obviamente no hago foto-realismo, pero realmente disfruté haciendo esta interpretación ya que me llevó de nuevo a ese día!
