I have been hand-coloring photos for ages, and I wanted to merge my painting style with my photography. I printed this underwater photograph onto canvas and then painted the canvas, creating a unique mixed media work.
The pearlescent and metallics in the blues and gold are really amazing in the light. This piece looks very much like an abstract painting until the viewer looks closer and sees the gentle slope of an eye of one of the fishes. The base photograph is "Abstract (Blue)".
