Donna Maloney – “Coral Reef”

Current bid: $480.00

1 in stock

The inspiration for this painting came from my honeymoon, when we went snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef. The coral was amazing and some of it came right up to the surface of the water, and the colour of the water was a beautiful aqua colour. As I was swimming away from the reef sharks, yes reef sharks, I notice the giant purple sea clams but didn’t hang around too long for I was keen to get back to the boat. This painting is part of a series of the ocean, and the fan coral is in most of my paintings. I have used the alcohol inks because the colours are so vibrant and was able to get the bubbles of the water perfectly with the alcohol ink.
