I have been dabbling for years but never doing much about it, never had the confidence as I always figured that without a “degree in art” I was not entitled to put my art forward – crazy I know. Then I decided to get more confidence so I googled “workshops in Toowoomba” and up popped Marks name. I fell in love with the way he painted water, and perspective underwater was an exercise we did in the workshop at Oakey earlier this year.
When I got home I painted out all the exercise canvasses and using the notes, memory and photographs of underwater, came up with this painting. I have just added the dolphins and changed the water line.
I am happy with it, the more I look at it I will pick up areas I would like to change, and the more I paint water I hope I will improve.
