Under the Ocean Art

Lyrical Art from Under the Ocean

This art series introduces a different style of my work. During the day I would go down the beach and paint the scenery - but at night I would draw the images from my mind.

In this collection of drawings and paintings The theme is inspired by the "Moon Woman" limited edition print with its underwater aquatic motif

Under The Ocean

This particular artwork below was originally drawn as a triptych (3 drawings placed side by side to create one piece) - but now I can use photoshop I have learnt to morph it all together into one thing. Back in the olden days (pre - internet skills) I used to cut the prints up and collage them together.. - any hoo - this is one of my personal favorites so I put it on the front page. Here are links to number 1 - buildings, number 2 - boat , and number 3 - mermaid

The Aquatic Fantasy World

Even though I lived near the ocean I had no real concept of the underwater world - so I made my own - I drew the series of the under the ocean pictures and then I think the Sunken Swan , after that I became inspired to start really looking into actual real live fish and was blown away. I have made an entire newsletter/miniwebsite all about my paintings and drawings of real fish last year


There is even a pastel picture amongst the collection - something I never really do ( I had a good bash at pastels and love the colours but found them too problematic to frame because of the dust)

But this one was a huge chalkboard - meters wide and high - that I used to constantly work on and change in exchange for free food at the 'Seaspray Cafe' when I was a young starving artist in Dunsborough (forever grateful) - click here to see the whole picture - (its a scene of the quindalup inlet at elmore road)
