The Adventurer Under the Sea (very large)


The adventurer under the sea is a 40x40x1.5 inches oil painting of under the ocean with a single threadfin butterfly fish. The fish is very small in the big blue sea and is very intent of his purpose. He is solo and is he free. Above him his yellows and purples are reflected in the surface of the water. Light sparkles and shines through the turquoise waves and ripple along the bottom of the rainbow coloured  ocean  sand. This painting as another in a series of seascapes inspired by a Caribbean holiday spent mostly face down in the sea snorkeling. But  it is also about the feeling of freedom and space that I love so much about the sea. It is dedicated to anyone starting on a new course in life. Painting on deep edge canvas, white edges, ready to hang.

[caption id="attachment_227430" align="alignnone" width="358"] sdr[/caption] 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 The instructions are often out of date or the writer was drunk so I often get lost but this is all part of the fun.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...
