Artwork Description

This portrait is based on H.P. Lovecraft's description of the dreaded "Deep Ones", underwater creatures who worship Dagon and the great Cthulhu. I have always been intrigued by the weirdness of real-life deep sea creatures with their bizarre, exaggerated anatomy and strange luminous organs and felt that Lovecraft's descriptions were vague enough that these features might be used in a portrayal of one of these repulsive minions.
Mixed media painting, 10 x 16 inches.

You have caught a brilliantly eerie underwater feel to this one, KL, great details, love the movement in the seaweed which adds to the over all feel of the ocean deep!
