portraiture modern realism, underwater realism painting, landscape


I paint mostly underwater scenes because I dive a lot and enjoy being in the water. Painting this subject reflects who I am and how I feel when I’m in the water, free. My goal is to not limit myself with this subject but to learn how to excel in others also. I make decisions during the course of my work by choosing a focal point; finding balance; establishing a rhythm of tranquility and choosing warm and cool colours to represent energy, peace, joy and so forth. My favourite tool is using my fingers to paint. It creates a pattern of gentleness and harmony. A painting has turned out really well when I feel 100% comfortable and satisfied with the results. It must evoke a sense of excitement and purity. With diligence, knowledge and skills, I will continue to use the talent that God has given me.
