Seafoam is an abstract seascape.  The original was done on paper as one of a set of 4 small paintings from the Seafoam Collection.  The paintings were prepared over a dark ground and using wet on wet technique they were painted forward from dark to light.  Scratches in the surface layer reveal the dark ground underneath.  These represent the seagrasses on the beach.  The Painting is influenced by the sea – the moving, rolling, foaming sea as it crashes and melts into the sand on the shore of the beach.    The colours are ones that I love to use and include turquoise, prussian blue, ochre yellow, white and magenta.  Once the painting was complete, it was named for white form on the left that, when combined with the blue of the sea and the ochre of the beach, resembled the foaming wash of the ocean. 

Inspiration

When I was a child we always went to the same beach.  It was a vast wide beach when the tide was out and you could walk for miles on the white clean sand.  When the tides were coming in they would hungrily move up the beach and by high tide the beach could be quite narrow in places.
