The beach

The Beach This painting is based on a quintessential Australian summer scene - the beach, except I decide to make this one a nude beach. My work and style is influenced by expressionism. I'm more interested in the way colour, shapes, textures and patterns create inner emotions, than trying to depict a 'photograph'. I have been told that my painting has a uniquely Australian style. I'm not sure what that is, but I'm very much influenced by Sidney Nolan, Reg Mombassa and Ken Done. My work is somewhere between fine art and commercial/pop art.
