Bold landscapes and vibrant colours celebrate the beauty of some of the world’s most beautiful coastlines. Artist JW Fountain uses resounding turquoises and blues and lush greens and golds to capture the peninsulas, inlets and vistas of her home on Waiheke Island, New Zealand. The artwork in this gallery are all originals painted with professional oil colours on museum grade canvas, unless otherwise noted.
The canvas has been stretched on 1 1/2 inch mounts and the artist nearly always paints the edges as well as the front of the canvas with the image. The advantage of this treatment is that framing is not necessary for display and the image can be appreciated at any angle.
