A Moment In Time by Marina Syntelis

80 x 60 cm
Oil on Cotton Canvas





A few thoughts from the artist.

In my painting "Underwaves" I created a scene that doesn't actually exist in nature when closely examined.

I have noticed that when underwater, the surface of the sea can resemble the sky. At times, this surface looks like the sky, with clouds resembling waves. This observation inspired me to paint a wavy ocean scene from underwater.

Many viewers of this painting think it is a cloudy sky above those waves. However upon closer inspection of the sky's turquoise color or the way the waves fade into the horizon, they begin to question their initial perception.
