This original waterscape painting by Irina Cumberland captures the beguiling patterns that can be observed on the ocean’s surface. This intricate study ponders on the dramatic beauty and relaxing affects of the cerulean depths and is invested with greatly realistic brushwork. The artist achieves a convincing rendering of the aquatic muse which allows this piece to imitate the same meditative state that is elicited when viewing the sea in reality. The blend of green, blue and turquoise tones are applied with precision brushwork, producing a suffusion of colour echoing the euphonic sound of gentle sea waters. An attention to the way fascinating luminosity and reflections interact with the transparent surface is implied in the artist’s impression, giving the piece a fascinating range of highlights and shadows. Small in scale, this artwork hones in on a unique close-up perspective which bespeaks the serenity of the ocean. This piece is painted in oils on wood panel, hand signed by the artist, and framed ready to be displayed.
