70cm x 50 cm Oil on Canvas, Framed Underwater painting
The painting “Be stripy” was created in five dives on one of the favorite parts of the home reef. There I also worked on the painting ““Blue and yellow”“. A small tunnel under the coral created the dynamics of a constant dance of snappers scurrying through it. The stripes on the backs of the fish could “overlap” with the coral branches in the background. Altogether they created a rhythmic harmony. The feeling of streakiness was enhanced by the butterflyfish that has been posing responsibly for me throughout the third dive.
