Water as a Subject for Artwork | Inner Artist | Friday Art Tip

June 17, 2019


Water has been around forever..or a least a remarkably long time, and people have been painting it since prehistoric times.


Whether is it a wavy line on a cave wall, a dark ominous ocean from the Renaissance, or the ethereal Water Lilies by Claude Monet, water is a alluring subject.


While Claude Monet's Water Lilies are absolutely lovely, my style leans more to the contemporary.  I absolutely love this artwork!  


The close up detail of something as simple as water becomes intricate and intriguing with the movement of the lines and I love that this faded blue green turquoise is both soothing and colorful at the same time as well. 


Just as water is dangerous yet at the same time soothing, I find a yin and yang to this artwork, noticing all of the detail in the movement of the water but being calmed by it at the same time.  It is a perfect subject for summertime here in Orlando.  I hope you are all visiting your favorite beach or pool!  Maybe you can photograph the water and create something as beautiful as this!
