A mixed media underwater illustration. The asymmetry of the swimming fish and the stylistic sea creatures were inspired by Art Nouveau. If you look closely you will see an ambulance of detail. The patterns and layers of effects are captivating. This artwork would look fabulous in a playroom or in a bathroom interior.

Signed edition.

This original painting is A1 size and was created using different layers of mixed media techniques. I wanted it to be decorative and ornamental. It started with ink effects and stencilling. By flipping my handmade seaweed stencils I created symmetry. This was inspired by the Art Nouveau Movement.
The main stylised shells were painted separately. I then positioned them carefully keeping the piece as symmetrically balanced as possible. The fish are inspired by the French jewellery and glassmaker Rene Lalique (love his work). To add movement and energy my main fish has extra swoosh:) The use of wet inks and patterns help to give the fish a wet and reflective look. If you look closely you will lots of mark making and embellishments.
The sea urchins and starfish add an illustrative feel. The overall feel of this piece was inspired by some Victorian Majolica ceramics. Majolica would have and may still be a feature of many Victorian homes. It's glossy and colourful raised reliefs are very tactile and eye-catching. Have a google to see some examples of Majolica, Art Nouveau and Lalique.
