Gloriously Free Under the Sea – an underwater painting with purple tang fish

£1,500.00

A 40 x 40 x 1.5 inches large original oil painting of a purple and yellow tang tropical fish under a clear aqua and blue sea. The water is crystal clear and turquoise green and blue as a Caribbean tropical ocean is. The purple tang swims intent on his destination and around him is a large sea bed of rainbow sand and flicking light that recedes back into the distance until it fades out. The surface of the water and waves above are sparkling and reflecting fleeting bright light patterns on the sea bed. I like to paint single fish in bag ocean spaces as it give you a sense of space and peace to look at it and is also meant to empower those who feel they are flying solo. It is good to go your own way and stick to your dreams – especially to those in the arts… Edges are white, no frame needed.

Gill Bustamante

I am a professional artist based in Sussex, England and I paint large semi-abstract original landscapes, seascapes, animal and bird inspired paintings in oil on canvas. My painting style is a fusion of abstract, traditional, expressionist, impressionist, and a little art nouveau. Most of my paintings are also available as prints on paper or canvas. Art is a communication form. Many artists don’t know what they are trying to communicate and so try lots of different things before finding out. Probably most of us do. Personally, it took me until I was 54 before I found out what the hell I was trying to communicate and it turned out to be rather simple. I am trying to capture a tiny part of the magic I experience in looking at nature, so that I can keep a bit it of it forever by fixing it as a painting on a canvas. I get inspiration for these images by various means but the best one of all is by walking and looking. I like to print pub walks off of the internet for different areas of South East England and simply go and explore. The instructions are often out of date or the writer was drunk so I often get lost but this is all part of the fun. My ultimate goal with my painting is to one day paint something so captivating that I will not be able to look away. Then I want to disappear into it and find all the things that really ought to be there. It may or may not ever happen but it is a great carrot to my donkey...
