500mm x 1200mm, oil on canvas


“This is a stunning collection of the most beautiful paintings of the sea, of light and of the sheer energy and power of the natural world.  Surf is booming and retreating in every painting.  The mood is calm and full of serenity in some works and brooding and powerful in others.

The Wind and the Whisper
700mm x 1000mm, oil on canvas


With wonderful titles, such as above, The Wind and the Whisper, these paintings have the ability to transport you to a different place.
Step back and view an almost photo real depiction of the ocean, step forwards and marvel in the texture of the paint application and the amazing array of colours used to make these images.

More Joy!
200mm x 500mm, oil on canvas


Andrew Giddens has a true gift, he can paint water that appears glassy and clear whilst having the huge weight and swell of the sea, right there, inside the painting.”
