Under Sea Escape

Title: Under Sea Escape
Description: Under Sea Escape is a large underwater painting of three queen angel fish in a tropical blue sea. It is 40x40 inches. The viewpoint is on level with the fish who are swimming in formation and look as if that are escaping from somewhere. Below them is a sandy seabed with light patterns flickering across it as you get in clear tropical seas. Above them you can see their view of the surface of the sea with all its rippling waves and the light sparkling through it. In the distance you can see a shimmering violet line at the point where the sea and the sand merge. Violet being a magic colour adds a little mystery to it. You can also see how the deep blue water gets lighter and more turquoise the closer it gets to the sunlight above then waves. This is another in a long series of paintings made after a Caribbean holiday where the wonder of snorkelling became one of my favourite things in the world. Painted on deep edge canvas so no frame needed, 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.
