Tugela Mouth

FOR SALE: R6800 (Includes Shipping in SA)       Size: ± 60 x 80 x 3,5cm / 24 x 34 x 1,5″

Artwork Description:

Tugela Mouth is like a cousin to “Along the Dolphin Coast” as they both capture scenery from the KwaZulu Natal North coast.  They do not form a series as such, but would go well together as their colour schemes are related. Both have a turquoise tendency and both of them have low hanging clouds – a stormy day by the sea without it raining just yet.
The Tugela river runs through Natal and one often pass over the river itself or towns and places that contain a reference to it. This artwork captures the stream where it runs into the ocean. The photo I worked from was taken by the end of winter so the river was more like a small stream. The photo was taken from a distance which explains the angle of the artwork where the ocean is in the foreground without being super close to the onlooker.
The people walking on the beach gives this artwork a sense of scale otherwise not possible. Even though they are very small, one’s eye is immediately drawn toward them. The line on the horizon is blurred with the ocean scene fading into they sky. The clouds are particularly eye catching as they convey a sense of drama and depth. I used the opacity and transparent properties of the paint to achieve this see through effect.
I again used a combination of brush and palette knife techniques as with “Along the Dolphin Coast”.
I just love creating seascapes!! Let me know what you think at the end of the page at the comments section.
