Commissioned painting of Shelly Beach at sunrise

This piece was commissioned by a lady who spent some time in Manly. She found peace at Shelly Beach and found the landscape very restorative.

Colours she likes are teal and red. So I drew inspiration from that guidance.

We wanted to use free brushstrokes with some abstraction, but still have the painting recognisably Shelly.

We went with a stained teak box frame for a contemporary feel. the frame was a similar colour to a mid-brown used in the artwork, which gives a natural and cohesive look.

In this video, I style the painting using some textured brown and grey cushions.
