Jellyfish

paintings

The Jellyfish. I love this painting, it brings back a memory of when I used to swim in the sea in Cornwall and I saw one directly beneath me. It was quite a stormy day and I saw one of the lifeguards swim quite far out, so being a confident swimmer myself, I swam out a similar distance. However the tide was coming in so it was actually a lot deeper by the time I got out there. I was looking down as you would doing a front crawl stroke and noticed this giant pink and purple Jellyfish underneath me. It was very beautiful but I remember as soon as I saw it I did get a big adrenaline rush from feeling frightened. I was scared that if I took another stroke I might brush its tentacles! It probably wasn’t that close to me in reality, however, it still got my heart rate up. As you can imagine, I did swim very quickly back to shore.

The style of this painting reflects the movement and freedom of a Jellyfish. They are magnificent creatures, and it inspires me to paint more of them in a variety of colours.

I sold this painting to the lady who does a lot of sea swimming herself. She is very happy with it and has placed it in her lovely sea themed home.

Whale of a time.

Hi followers. I have some news! I’ve got back into painting, and really enjoying it. My most recent painting was a large whale with a swimmer in the depths of the ocean. The motive behind this painting was mainly my love for the sea and open water swimming. I also think that the whale of all sea life is the most magnificent and peaceful. I do hope it brings peace and happiness to those that see it, considering everything that is going on right now. I have also managed to sell this piece to a lovely lady in the UK (pictured below) who also has a passion for open water swimming. She loves it and has put the painting in her very cool sea themed kitchen! I’d like to do a jellyfish next, so watch this space. Have a great weekend folks.
