Off to the Beach
Original Abstract Painting
Acrylic Paint on Canvas
Size: H 20cm x W 20cm x D 4cm
(Please note that in situ images are purely an indication of how a piece may look).
Off to the Beach is an original abstract expressionist landscape painting by emerging artist Diane Whalley. Thick layers of acrylic paint have been applied to a deep 4cm canvas with the painting continuing around all the sides. This is to represent the textures of the beach and the feeling of the motion of the sea.
The blues of the sea, the pastel shades of the sky and the peachy tones of the beach transport you to the thrill of heading to the beach and that first moment of arriving – smelling the saltiness in the breeze, hearing the waves crashing on the sand and having a blue vista taking your thoughts far beyond anything you imagined.
This piece is sold unframed to reveal the painting spreading across the 4cm deep sides offering the rawness of the coast. It works well with a another artwork called Catching the Wave.
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.
