This original seascape study by Michael Alford composes a busy, charming beach scene filled with figures situated throughout and painted in classic impressionism style. The artist employs a palette of a symphony of soft, serene blue hues and earth tones to honestly create the impression of the dramatic temperament of the sea on the shore and its surrounding rock features. This cacophany of colour echoes the sound of the crashing waves. The depth achieved from impasto layers gives the piece an inticing energy that is pleasing to observe. Accompanied by a range of contemporary figures interacting with the vista on a warm, summer sky, which gives the artwork an enjoyable ambience. This piece is painted in oils on panel, hand signed by the artist and framed, ready to be displayed.
