‘Torquay Beach’

Mixed Media. (Collage/Paint and Textiles)

29,5 X 21cm (unframed)




I took a photograph of the main Torquay Beach. I have transformed that photo by using mixed media to create a new artwork. I have used the image of the fence posts, added the sand, sea and sky with paint and added more texture by collaging the clouds and adding textile netting.


How does your work engage with the theme ‘The World at Home’?

We live in a beautiful part of the world. Everyday I observe the sea and sky and its ever changing hues of light, I love the way the sea water covers the sand and leaves a shimmer of light in its wake. My artwork endeavours to capture the beauty yet simplicity of this beach scene at Torquay Beach.
