The work is one from a series based on a visual investigation of the sensation of light and reflection on water. The series consists of computer, generated prints and computer, animated sequences. The primary intent is in realising the sensations evoked by the play of light on water. The colours and shapes generated by the movement of waves and ripples, the changing surface of reflections, the light bouncing of the water surface. The sensation of light on water generated by, specific rivers and seas at differing times of the year. The work explores the area between realism, exploring the tools now available in a 3D computer animation system for these purposes, and abstraction, looking at the aspects of colour, form and movement. The view is presented straight on to produce a flat perspective in line with the picture surface. The work is influenced by a number of artists, primarily Monet and Bridget Riley.
