Watercolor of OXYGEN



I have done a few more darks on the OXYGEN watercolor.  The line melding the water with the figure reflection has been softened and deepened by deeper blues and grays.  I want the painting to be evocative and mysterious-- rather than bright.

I still have work to do on the bubbles.. and several other areas to tweak.    Those areas will be addressed in days to come.

So far... I like it.. and I like the concept and psychological message.

Perfect statement for this time of year!

Hi Carol. It IS a fascinating image. I'm curious - what is the psychological message?

This is just amazing! :)

the message is about coming up for air... in a very confusing world. the "oxygen" is our life blood... the sustaining force that carries us though. oxygen can also be a metaphor for love....
