Brigus South: Mirage

Brigus South: Mirage

Oil Painting on Canvas; 30" x 40"

When surrounded by sky and ocean there is a floating sensation at the cliff’s edge.  Retaining this soul-gripping feeling made working on this image exciting.  The rocks I find most abstract and colours just bounce from hill to hill to sea.  I work with the composition to carry the eye through the picture.

There are paths, roads, and crevices in the rock to take the viewer to three small yellow boats which hold the eye before the massive blue Atlantic.  I want the piece to be filled with excitement by exaggerating the hill forms and the brightness of the colour palette. It is interesting to view the location of the retired fishing boats while down in the cove.  Now they rest on rocks up the hills as reminders of the past.
