This artwork was inspired by a stack of old photos taken several years ago with a waterproof camera diving in the Keys. I used many layers of thin acrylic glazes with some iridescent and metallic paints to capture the luminous quality of the underwater world. The final varnish is a satin sheen to minimize glare but pop the colors. This painting is on gallery wrapped canvas with white edges. It comes ready to hang.
