Wind Against Tide off St. Catherine's Point

THE PHOTOGRAPH

I've been entranced by the sea off St. Catherine's Point for years. The tide races through here, and on a big spring ebb when a Westerly Gale blows against it, the sea comes alive. It's like a crazy dance fight - the ocean against the wind - and I can watch it, and photograph it, for hours....

 

HOW WE MAKE THE PICTURE

We build everything ourselves in the gallery. The photograph is printed on the very best archival matte canvas then to dry for a few days. The great thing about a matte finish with no glass is that you have no distracting glare or reflections. It's a much more direct experience.

Whilst the print is drying we can get on with making the stretcher frame and the tray frame that the finished canvas will drop into. The tray frame is hand painted.

Next the canvas is stretched over the stretcher frame. After that, we carefully paint the canvas  edges with several coats of the same paint used on the tray frame, so the they match perfectly. Then we assemble the canvas and frame, put a hanging wire on the back, and attach a Certificate of Authenticity. Finally Neil signs the piece front and back adding the title and edition number.

We use the very best materials, and I would expect my pictures to look exactly the same in 100 years. They won't fade in our lifetime.
