'Aqua', Study of a Bladderwort

'Aqua', Study of a Bladderwort

Watercolour on paper

21 x 21 cms


This is a study of a type of seaweed called 'bladderwort' which I found on a beach at St Bees in Cumbria on holiday. I used watercolour because I thought it was most appropriate for a creature of the water. The twisted shapes and bulbus forms give the painting a stocky appearance. The limited colour palette of green's, blues and oranges with a touch of red all worked beautifully to give the striking colours. Currently shown unframed. If wanting it framed, please contact me directly.

Mysterious, spiritual artwork, whether in a classically inspired style or a more contemporary adaptation, reminds us that there is a greater force in the world than man. Do you want to see more of such unique artwork? Then get in touch with me in any of the ways below...
