Storm Watching – large contemporary seascape

The continuous motion of the winds and the sea stir sea-spray high up onto the cliffs above. I want that. I want that feeling of stirring and motion. With as few brushstrokes as possible on this large canvas, I want us to be slightly queasy from it as we are swayed in the waters and crash against the rocks within our viewing of this painting.

Detailed viewing and purchase information available HERE.

Contemporary as this painting is, if J.M.W. Turner (1775 – 1851) comes to mind you can be forgiven because, without any reference to the artist in my original post, his name appeared on the recommended tag list. I have therefore included a few links to his work in the related articles section below for your reading pleasure.

Also, there is a detailed in-progress post on my Creative Potager blog  HERE which includes reference images from my photography shoot that inspired this painting.

UPDATED OCTOBER 13, 2014:  Short video (less than six minutes) where Terrill Welch talks about this painting and the intentions behind her work.
