Underwater studies. These paintings are based on photographs I took of myself underwater in the sea on the Isle of Wight. They are some of my oldest paintings but still my favourites. I think because they bring back memories of growing up on the Island and swimming in the sea all the time. It influenced a lot of my art throughout school and further studies. These paintings were a trio but sadly I’ve misplaced the third one. These were actually painted using oil paints which I’ve only used a handful of times.
