Crystal Sea Angels

Title: Crystal Sea Angels
Description: Crystal Sea Angels is 40x40x1.5 inches large oil painting of an underwater seascape of three queen angel fish swimming in formation. The three fish swim like ballet dancers and are intent on a purpose we cannot see. The surface of the blue sparkling water of the ocean can be seen above them rippling in small waves and the light twinkles through the waves and makes fleeting patterns on the rippled sandy seabed. The sand is multi-coloured like the sands around Barbuda and Barbados where pink coral has coloured the sand pink. I chose the angel fish for this composition because they are beautifully coloured and look as if the back ground of the pink sand and the turquoise blue sea was made just for them. Which possibly it was. This is another in a series of underwater seascapes that I have been painting with very fond memories of snorkelling in the Caribbean. I paint one of these every year as winter draws in to help me retain the essence of summertime and holiday feelings. It is painted on deep edge canvas, edges white, ready to hang.

Artist Biography:

I am a Sussex based artist who paints large original landscape paintings and seascape paintings in oil on canvas.

My art is painted mostly from memory after having visited somewhere beautiful and are an attempt to capture some of the essence of that place.
​

I gained a fine art degree from Brighton in 1983 and began my painting career as a portraitist and muralist. However, sometime in the late 90�s, after painting my 200th labrador, I realised I was crushingly bored and needed to develop my own painting style and began to paint landscapes and seascapes for my own amusement.



I am inspired by the patterns and movements of nature and animals and eventually developed a painting style that combines traditional painting techniques with more abstract and contemporary techniques.



My artworks evolve from simple ideas, usually after I have taken a walk somewhere. They are expressionistic, impressionist, art deco, art nouveau and something possibly unique to me in the feeling they evoke.



I like to think that paintings have �little souls� woven into them by artist�s and that these are what call to a viewer (or not as the case may be) and give a painting presence and desirability.

​

My goal is to one day paint a place so beautiful I will disappear into it and never be seen again and to create worlds where others can do the same � even if only for a little while.
