Under the Sea

I felt like sharing quite a few images today, so here is an aquatic themed selection to quench your thirst. They are quite different but all connect through their reference to the ocean. I love how many ways a person can portray water – with extreme realism or with an abstract suggestion. I love this first piece by Kelly McKernan, who has quite a few water themed pieces you should check out on her website. Water and women seem to go together quite nicely. Perhaps it is the mermaid or siren idea that allows an easy way to connect the two, or simply the notion that water is feminine. Either way, I find that the combination can create a mysterious yet almost sinister essence. Do you agree?

    I am in love with the first watercolor. What a strong image but it also has a vulnerability. You are right the combination is almost haunting. Thank you for sharing.
