The Curl – No.1

The painting Breaker No1 by Steve Bonner

A Wave Study

It’s been on and off the easel for over a year but at last the painting is finished! I’ve been painting breaking waves for a long time now but usually A4 in size and painted in Acrylics. This is my first big study.

Executed in oils on canvas and measuring 80cm x 80cm (31″) this is a big and powerful painting. It isn’t framed but, although it’s a standard depth clean edge canvas, the edge is painted. In a minimalist setting it looks great hung just as it is.

As I said at the top of the page, this painting has taken a long time to finish. I’ve no idea why that should be, painting it was fun from the first to the last brush stroke – intuitive painting usually is. It’s something of a Prussian fest – being predominately Prussian Blue and Prussian Green, with Indigo, a dash of Cobalt purple, and about half a tube of Titanium White. You know what? I’m going to paint another big one!

The painting is priced at £750.00 and is available from Billy’s on the Beach, Bracklesham

You’re very welcome to pop into my studio – please give me a call or drop me a message first. If you live in or around Chichester I’m happy to bring it around for a home viewing. Covid aware and restrictions allowing of course.

Just to let you know - I’m delighted to consider commissions, on just about anything (with exception of children and animals - there are many specialist painters out there who would do a much better job than I ) Please contact me here and we’ll discuss your ideas. SB
