About this painting

This stunning blue themed square painting is a series of simple loops overlapping one another.

Now, whilst that principle may sound simple and easy to comprehend, turning it into a reality always proves to be a lot more difficult than I imagine. But that’s okay – I love a challenge. And in Rising Tides that’s exactly what I got.

Water, water!

I’m not revealing the techniques behind the paint effects but I can tell you that putting blue on blue was always a bit of a gamble.

In fact it was the desire to imitate water that led me to think that I could somehow create the feeling of waves moving and water circulating. The red and yellow are there to add a little definition and colour.

I have had several goes at getting this right so there’s always a pain threshold to break through whenever you try to do something you’ve not done before. That’s true of almost everything i do.

The result

It is, in my humble opinion, spectacular. That’s not a measure of whether you should like it or not but instead as a way of gauging how well I executed the thoughts that were in my head.

It has the feeling of moving water, it’s beautifully finished and has some stunning paint textures. Mission accomplished!
