  • 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.

    During a family holiday to Costa Rica, the beach that inspired this seascape was the closest to our hotel. It was a beautiful sweeping bay facing out to the Pacific that was always empty, allowing us to roam along the flat sands, enjoying the gentle rollers, with the headland covered in tropical rainforest.

    Finished framed size is 64 cm by 44 cm.
