Artist's description:

36 x 34"
In this painting, my aim was to convey the sense of stillness and reverie that grows as the depth under the surface of the water increases. I tried to describe the shafts of light and the way the colours slowly recede into calm blueness by employing layers of glazes to add optical depth and make the different blue pigments glow. The textured surface of the artwork holds your eye at the picture plane itself and adds (I hope) a gentle vagueness. The floating lionfish and hair strands help to reinforce the illusion of being underwater.

This picture has been painted on the sides so it is ready to hang without needing a frame. A coat of retouching varnish has been applied to protect the paint surface and enhance the colours. The work is signed on the front and comes with an indexed certificate of authenicity attached.
