Coral Garden 1, Maldives

Coral Garden 1, Maldives 2016

Acrylic Paint on Paper, 30 x 20 cm, 7/5/2016

This Coral Garden Seascape was painted during low-ish tide 11.30-12.30 from the balcony of Room 133 at the Constance Moofushi, Maldives. This was my wife’s and I 10th Year Wedding Anniversary trip to the Maldives and it is a magical place with incredibly clear water and excellent snorkelling. Here I tried to capture the changing shades and tones from the shallow coral gardens to the reef drop off and I purposely don’t paint to the edges of the paper as I like the framing “window” effect of the original paper exposed around the image.
