This painting is strictly artist's impression of under water fishes and their movements, colors, corals and flow of the ocean waves. Ocean is full of life and energy and this art represents that. The work is done with complete artist's imagination. Various textures enhances the effect of atmosphere. As fishes swim how they leave the illussion of their colors behind is depicted brilliantly.
OCEANWORLD - is one-of-a-kind artwork.
This painting is a duplicate of my dream sequence. The vivid color and flowing water in dream inspired me to create this image. Acrylic paints are best suited for this painting because it is easy to create various textures in the background. The images came for a split second and so many elements appear "wavy", fore ground, shadows, river, fields etc. Trees were just a "blobs" but had a quick lights passing through. The style is a sort of illustrative, kind of "fairy land".I am hoping the viewers will experience this feeling. This is suited for children's room, nursery, elementary school, children's' hospital, a travel agency, country or farm house, as birthday or holiday gift.
This flower, Bird of Paradise, always fascinates me. Its colors, shape and uniqueness are so attractive. Its a perennial plants, native to South Africa. Now they are grown world-wide. It is the official of Los Angeles.
