The beaches are known for the mercurial movements of their waves. And while it may seem difficult to capture the fleeting seaside scenes, the artist Liliana gigovic did exactly that. His expressive seascape paintings depict the changing weather and the kaleidoscopic colors of the ocean using broad brushstrokes and a palette knife.
Based in Melbourne, Australia, Gigovic finds creative inspiration in the many nearby beaches. She uses a mixture of styles, including Impressionism, to represent the fluidity of seascapes in different seasons and at different times of the day. Gigovic’s palette is usually made up of similar soft hues, which imbues a feeling of haze and delicacy. Additionally, using broad, expressive brush strokes and a palette knife to apply oil paint, the artist creates layers of geometric shapes. These loosely defined subjects are what give her composition a sense of spontaneity and time. Gigovic’s soft pastel paintings seem to celebrate the beauty of the little moments that pass.
