Artwork Description

Mixed Media on canvas

Signed on the front.

This is my largest labour of love yet. A fantasy Seascape beneath the Waves.
When I first started with the inkwork and water followed by gladwrap to create textures, I actually had Jacarandas in mind. But, the end result of the inks mingling lent itself to an underwater scene. I immediately thought of the delightful seahorses as well as the jellyfish... both seem to just float in the water, carried around by the currents. As this is my fantasy of a silent world beneath the waves, I doubt very much that both creatures live anywhere near each other in real life.... I enhanced the hues of the blues, turquoise and pinks and added some spots of colour to spice it up a bit. I'm not sure the computer photo does it justice. I've hinted at various corals as well as a hint of a turtle.
To finish it, I decided to use Winsor and Newtons Iridescent medium for the seahorses and the heads of the jellyfish. Depending on the light conditions, they now seem to shimmer.
All in all, I enjoyed creating this statement piece very much. We'll see what I'll create next .
Original artwork created in November 2019. Signed on the front.
Artist quality mixed media mediums in the form of Acrylics, Inks and Iridescent mediums.
This is a large artwork on artist quality triple primed 10oz cotton duck loose canvas.
I have left approx. 4cm border around the sides, painted with a mix of blue and turquoise acrylics for stretching purposes. Close up can be seen in the Signature photo.
This will definitely suit a large wall in a room with hints of blues and pinks and it will definitely be a statement piece.
This will be an exciting opportunity for you, especially after stretching. You could hang as is, or choose a frame to enhance the artwork to suit your decor. Insitu photo is not to scale. Just to see what it may look like, imagining a frame around it.
Finished with Sennelier Satin spray varnish for protection.
Signed Certificate of Authenticity will be included.
