About this work of Art
Janette George primarily paints landscapes and seascapes. She finds she is drawn to expressing places she has visited where light and colour interact to provide beauty – wide expansive skies, the hues of nature, reflections in water, textures and layers. Janette loves how colour can be built up and blended from its constituents.
Working initially with acrylic paint with a lot of water, she lets the paint move and disperse to give the effects achieved in the sky, sea and land. Janette then uses her oils to complete the painting, enabling her to create the depth and levels of colour, constantly blending and mixing the paint to produce the hue and texture needed.
The inspiration for this seascape was the almost unreal light on a day in North Africa following a few days of stormy weather. The sun was finally coming out but the sea was still very angry and the sand blown up in the bad weather was still hanging thick in the air, so that the sun was struggling to shine through.
