Atlantic Bay 2019

118 x 80 cms (Oil on Canvas) This painting was inspired by my Diving Adventures in the Atlantic Ocean searching for sunken wrecks. Some coastlines provide spectacular subjects for painting and this Bay on the western shores of Ireland was one such area.

Roca Partida 2019

This painting (oil on Canvas) was inspired by a Night Arrival at the volcanic structure during a Diving Trip in the Mid Pacific while filming the Sharks and Giant Manta Rays. The eerie arrival at 4.00am by ship created a very special subject.
