Inspirational Seascape

"Daybreak"
56x153cms oil




A stunning new painting by Chris Hooper titled "Daybreak" a beautiful seascape in oil painted onto stretch canvas.  Posting a couple of casual shots of Chris in his studio up the north coast, note the surfboards to the right! so when he's not painting, he grabs one of his many boards and surfs the beautiful beaches of the Sunshine Coast.  Created in striking colours, Chris has a first hand view of the sun rising on the beaches and this tranquil time of the day is prominent in a lot his work.  This particular painting has all the elements of a beach somewhere near where Chris lives, as this is where his inspiration begins.
