Award-winning artist Geoff Francis has been shortlisted four times in Saatchi Showdowns, and his photography has won awards. His work is attracting a keen interest and is considered very collectable.
There is a part of the Dorset Coast in Hardy's Wessex where throughout my life I have found real serenity. The light catches the water in a most exquisite way.
Winter Waves is one of the Studland series of paintings. Whatever time of the year, my walks at Studland always recharged and renewed. The beach in winter is a lonelier place and the sea provides an ever-changing canvas for contemplation.
Looking at the sea releases the imagination. Even in the frozen moments of an abstract painting, there should be enough movement to stimulate the imagination.
Textured with industrial paints, and over painted in acrylic and oils.
