Fast Seascape

This clip was made in 2003, when I was obsessed with painting the sea. I was developing a method pf painting the sea, at speed, using wet-in-wet techniques and removing the wet watercolour paint using blotting paper. The over-dramatic music is Wagners Flying Dutchman in which a sea captain is doomed to sail the oceans for eternity. I felt this might reflect the drama of the subject, but it now seems rather melodramatic.
