Gordon Phillipson's paintings are the result of a strong visual experience, and are a way for him to preserve and personalize the experience. His paintings are generally done in studio, from his own digital photographs. He often uses the computer to manipulate these digital images, and when he is happy with the result, he creates a drawing outline on watercolor paper based on the photograph. He then creates the watercolor painting.

As a child growing up in Jamaica, Gordon Phillipson remembers clean, sunny, fresh, undeveloped seascapes like this one. This painting is a view looking toward the west from a rented bungalow on the beach at a small seaside village called Duncans on Jamaica's North Coast. The inspiration for this painting is the pristine white coral sand beach - protected by nearby coral reefs and lapped calmly by the crystal clear Caribbean. This beach, and the transparent blues and blue-greens of the Caribbean touching the cerulean sky at the horizon, evoked many childhood memories of sea, sand, sun and play.
