Beach Studies by Sally West

Sally West is an Australian artist based at Sydney. Her work has been exhibited in Australia but also in Europe and the United States. She has numerous awards throughout her career in a lifespan of 40 years. Through her paintings she creates a textural surface, by using thick paint.

Her latest series, Beach Studies, was a landscape painting performed at Freshwater Beach – a popular location for surfers. She depicted wonderfully the actual scenery of the beach, the swimmers, the surfers. She used actual paint for the details of her paintings and the outcome is outstanding. By placing colours one on top of the other she created the actual setting, like anyone was actually there. The result is impressive. Enjoy.
