Marina Syntelis (b.1975) went back in time to bring back a painting technique favoured by the Old Masters, incorporating a secret recipe of blending resins, linseed oil, turps and oils to create an incredible luminescence , vitality depth to her oil paintings.
Whilst she normally paints the Aegean Sea here we have a rare Cornish work, as two waves literally crash into each other. The detail in the ripples and foam underneath the waves are the best i've ever seen in a seascape and Marina has a special talent for adding romanticism and sheer emotional energy into her work.
It is a true epic of a painting and takes you back to look at it time after time!
The painting is signed,measures 100cm x 70cm and is framed beautifully in Marina;s trademark double boxed white floating,
Meditteranean style frame which sets it off very nicely.
