Becky Van Vestraut – Warmed by the Light

Becky Van Vestraut lives and works in Falmouth, where she is inspired by the beauty of the sea, waves and dramatic skies. The connection with nature and the joy of looking out to sea are what her paintings strive to recreate for the viewer. She is fascinated by capturing fleeting moments as the sea, sky and light change with the weather and time of day. Moments such as when the sunlight sparkles on the horizon, or streams out from behind dark, heavy rain clouds, or as the colours in the sky at sunrise or sunset are reflected in the sea.

Beginning with photographs taken on her walks, she uses them to make sketches and oil studies to explore the colours and composition for larger paintings. Her paintings evoke calm and tranquility as well as the vastness and energy of the sea.
