Australian beach painting, this is an extra large painting featuring an underwater reef setting,vibrant and colourful and amazingly intricate in design, will surely impress the collector or lovers of art.
It is done with a distressed finish allowing for a uniquely different look resulting in a weathered washed out appeal that is subtle, soft yet scratchy and edgy, this is a surface finish that is not generally used in this style of painting, hence it's remarkable and unique appeal. (It looks amazing and so different).
Tipping the scales at almost 2 mts wide, the 198 cm x 137 cm is a huge masterpiece of vibrancy and extreme colour. It just makes you happy looking at it, the way the patterns intertwine, connect and extend across the painting whilst incorporating a theme of scuba divers exploring the underwater reef just appeals in so many ways.Karen very much enjoyed creating this totally awesome and uniquely distressed painting look that she will be doing many more in this style because in her words "The finish is incredible, different and everyone who has seen the painting just loves the distressed nature of finish, it has taken the painting one step further, brilliant l love it, it's my favorite painting to date, it's just so different and super interesting. I just love coral reefs and the feeling of exploring them, the beauty, the splendour, its a unique space that l could paint forever ".
