Turbulent Tide

Turbulent Tide


Gemma Lessinger

This is ‘Turbulent Tide’, the smallest piece in my study of the shoreline around Polzeath.


I am fascinated watching the power of the waves along this stretch of coast, the power of them building and building as they get closer to the shore, then crashing with immense momentum into the rugged rocks.  I wanted to capture this power and the energy in the water, but also the shimmering beauty in the deep dark water before the white water breaks.


I have used sea salt and sand in the acrylic paint to build the depth in the whitewater and fine poska pen to add the fine detail in the white water.
