Art by Wayne French

Capturing the Mood of the Ocean

Intro Paragraph

QuoteMarkMy life has been spent in and around the coastline of NSW Australia, I have been painting on and off since childhood and professionally for 10 years. I feel there is so much more to learn and I love the journey of learning new techniques in creating my works. It comes natural for me to want to express the energy, moods of the ocean, clouds and wave movement via the brush. I am intrigued by the colours, shades and transparency that constantly change in the ocean, and as a keen surfer these can be up close and very personal. The whole experience of capturing the power or serenity of this environment poses different challenges as does the expression through surrealism, impressionism or traditional approaches. There is just so much going on above and below the ocean and I guess as an artist for me the challenge is to express this creation as I see and feel.QuoteMark
