    interesting forms and movement, almost like the figure is turning into a fish, beautiful water

  • Thank you mariart – it is always challenging painting water and movement and seeing how the water changes the form of the body.

    Great feel on the surface of the water Carole. I like the almost nature of the figure also. Colours are terrific.
