Introducing "Weathering The Stormy Seas". An Abstract Watercolour Painting by Rik Barwick

I'm thrilled to introduce you to "Weathering The Stormy Sea," an abstract seascape born from a particularly challenging day in my life. The coast has always been a place where I feel rejuvenated and at peace. With this painting, I found myself exploring a whirlpool of emotions, channeling that coastal energy through chaotic brush strokes and purposeful splatters. It wasn't until I added the birds that I felt the piece was complete—like finding calm in my own tempest and the sense of fun that is often experienced at the beach - even when the weather is less favourable.

Discover a vibrant painting that captures the energy and emotion of coastal life. Let the chaotic brush strokes and purposeful splatters inspire you to weather any storm with determined courage. With each glance, you'll remember that even in the midst of tempests, there is always beauty and calm to be found.

Painting Techniques

This mesmerising watercolour artwork is meticulously crafted using Windsor & Newton paints on 200lb cotton cold-pressed paper that's been hand-stretched. The painting is made up of many layers of watercolour pigment. This allowed me to build depth into the water revealing the life beneath. I spray-lifted the background sky to build drama with the painting but to bring focus to the foreground's energy. I used an old brush toothbrush to spray gouache white pigment for the ocean spray

Framing Options

This artwork comes mounted but unframed, giving you the freedom to choose a frame that matches your aesthetic preference. I recommend using a professional framer and pair this with a large neutral white mounting mat and an off-black frame to accentuate the subtle tones in the sky. Opt for non-reflective glass to preserve the intricate details of this piece.

If you would like this painting professionally framed please let me know what colour frame you'd like and I'll source the frame and make the arrangements for you. Please note this will add a further 2-3 weeks to the turnaround time.


The artwork is securely wrapped and shipped via courier to ensure it reaches you in perfect condition. Embrace this inspiring seascape that intertwines the beauty of nature with human emotion, and let it be a striking statement in your space, reminding you of the resilience and hope it embodies.
