Artwork Description

A hybrid piece if there ever was one. Started out as an abstract mass of colors on thick paper, then I enhanced shapes that I liked. After that, scanning time, then further tweaking in Photoshop, filtering, tweaking, filtering... and ta-daaaah!

If your still thinking of changing this piece, don't. I think the ambiguity of perspective gives this picture it's hypnotic attraction. If we're looking down into water, it's a clever shift in perspective. If we're looking up into the sky, then leaving out the horizon makes you feel like you're floating in the clouds. Very cool.

that thing looks to me like its coming from the sky but if you look closely there are ripples thats why some people see it as water

I like your work, its ingenious.
its like the man is looking down into the sea and a big spider is swimming up.
What did you mean for it, was it anything in particular?

On first sight I had the impression of looking down from a high place over a cliff into the sea (although the colors are not right), but I think you meant it to be sky, don't you? Well, it catches the viewer's attention! Creepy beast, too.

Art at its best.
