The painting 'Harbour Breeze' from 2024, made in acrylic on canvas, measures 115x95 cm or approximately 45x37 inches, and is a vivid depiction of the dynamism and colour of a bustling harbour. The expressive use of colour and texture creates an illusion of movement and activity, almost as if a sea breeze animates the scene. The impasto technique lends a tactile richness to the work, with thick brushstrokes overlapping to build the composition. The contrasts of light and shadow areskillfully rendered, suggesting the brightness of day and the shadow of the harbour structures. The colour choice ranges from the cool blues and greens of the reflections on the water to the warm yellows and oranges of the buildings, creating a visual harmony that reflects the vibrancy and energy of a port at work. The work captures the essence of a place of transit and exchange, making it a modern interpretation that is both a homage and a reinvention of classical impressionism.
