Black-tipped Reef Sharks
Acrylic on board
The original painting was a commissioned piece of work for the Sultan of Oman, one of a series of paintings produced for the Royal Palaces. The initial idea for this painting came during a holiday in Turkey, where I stood for a while watching the patterns of sunlight dancing below the surface of a hotel swimming pool. It was several years later that this germ of an idea became utilised in a painting.
