I love being out in inclement weather so when a strong storm neared the coast, I was out there trying to do some studies in an effort to capture the feelings of wind and rain - plus the rather heavy surf! Here two waves are breaking at the same time and the wind is whipping off the tops in sheets of spray. Whitecaps further out show just how disturbed the sea was that day and heavy clouds darkened the scene rather dramatically. This smaller work is perhaps a precursor to larger paintings that I hope to complete at a later date - a pleasant reminder perhaps of time spent sea-watching off the North coast of Cornwall. Storm at sea is an oil on canvas, size 9" x 12" (23cm x 31cm).
I am an artist living and working near Washington DC in the USA. I was born in the UK but have lived abroad most of my life. I paint mostly landscapes and birds but have many interests so you never know what will turn up. Most of the paintings shown here are for sale so please contact me at jeremypearse (at) gmail.com if interested. Thanks for visiting!
