Acrylic paints on canvas board, 2007.
This picture is based on Professor Iain Stewart’s swim with the golden jellyfish at Palau. An amazing sight! From the BBC’s ‘Earth: The Power of the Planet.’ Acrylic paints on 46 x 60cm stretched canvas. February, 2014. I wanted to try painting an undersea scene or two a few months ago and was looking for inspiration. Around the same time, I happened to be watching ‘Earth: The Power of the Planet’, presented by Professor Stewart. There was an episode called ‘Oceans’ in which he did a fair amount of underwater swimming. The shots of him with thousands of jellyfish in Palau were spectacular. It was fun doing all the jellyfish with different amounts of light passing through their transparent bodies. The painting is on my wall now. It’s quite nice to look at because of the shades of blue.
