Coral Gardens 3, Maldives

Coral Garden 3, Windy Day, Maldives, 2016

Acrylic on Paper, 30 x 21 cm, 8/5/2016

This seascape was done from the same spot as the other two paintings, but in this one I included a mysterious dark blue deep hole that we could see. It was a very sunny day as I painted this from the shade and I still got sunburnt! I was trying to capture the flickering reflections of the sunlight on the surface of the water and the darker tones of the coral under the water. It was the rainy season while we were there and storms would come and go creating incredible cloud formations and choppy waves from time to time.
