Neptune's Nautilus..Water Media
I was living on Maui at the time of these SHELL and TROPICAL paintings. I believe this was painted in the early 90's.
I am still very influenced by the nautical elements and tropical themes, as you might have noticed.
This one was published in a couple of books, one in Hawaii and one in Australia. I also made a poster out of it which sold out.
Again it has the white ink overlays to make panels over the watercolor. The shapes of course are shells, and I used real shells as my reference. The background areas are completely made up.
This image was around 30" x 30" and is SOLD!
