Catching the Wave is an original abstract expressionist painting by emerging contemporary artist Diane Whalley. Painted in thick layers of acrylic on a deep 4cm canvas with the paint extending around the four sides creating an impression of continuation, expressing the vastness of the sea.

All about the thrill of catching the wave as it approaches, whether actually being in the water surfing the waves or charging your way through it. Or simply watching its power from land as the water surges towards you and just stopping short of your toes or is it going to bubble over your feet undercutting the sand from beneath you. There are deep blues from the sea and softer shades from the sky, white foam of the waves and peachy orange of the beach – the sounds, smells and visions of the coast are here with you.

This artwork is sold unframed to allow the rawness of the paint to be seen on all four edges of the 4cm deep canvas. This piece works well alongside Off to the Beach.

Size: H:20 cm x W:20 cm

Diane Whalley has original artworks for sale with Wychwood Art in their art gallery and online. Diane Whalley has been creating and designing for a number of years across a number of disciplines, but since 2016 she began her adventure with abstract painting, mainly in acrylics, sometimes with oil pastel, graphite and mark making details. Her paintings are often a mix of layered muted colours with splashes of brighter shades, using abstract images and ethereal, painterly swathes resulting in fresh, light and immersive compositions. Through the layers of paint can be glimpsed images and detailing. She paints intuitively from the imagination and personal reflections. After graduating from Liverpool School of Art and Design with a BA (hons) degree Diane worked for a number of years for the media and PR agencies. It was after becoming a mum to two daughters that she returned to her love of art and design. At first she worked with textiles producing and selling quirky and colourful pictures in Warwickshire and Kent. When tragedy struck her family she was propelled onto a new path with her daughters deciding to make Cornwall her home. It was a time of reflection and learning to sail, with longs trips around the Mediterranean. This period has greatly influenced her work - full of contemplation, vibrancy, experimentation and expressionism. Diane now works from her garden studio and gallery at her home just on the outskirts of Fowey. Here she is surrounded by AONB and just a stone’s throw from the beautiful Cornish coastline, from where she draws some of her inspiration. Over the years her artworks have been exhibited in Kent, Warwickshire and Cornwall - including Cornwall Open Studios week and selected artworks for Penwith Gallery associate members summer exhibition 2018 and St.Ives Society of Artists winter exhibition 2019 - and she is represented in Oxfordshire by Wychwood Art. Diane’s artworks can be found in private collections in Paris, Dublin, Australia, South Africa and across the UK.
