Lanterns of the Deep | Oil | 2013
In this painting, I wanted to emphasize the graceful movement of the jellyfish. Using multiple images I took years ago for reference, I arranged them in a way that keeps the eyes circling the piece. I also used very strong orange and blue complimentary hues - this was a bit of artistic liberty, as jellyfish do not glow this brightly in real life, but I don't mind bending the rules a little.
