Blue Reef is an original abstract work and part of a series of three paintings originating with my work first piece in the series, called “Blue Waves.” For “Blue Reef” in particular, I combined a variety of blue and aquamarine tones reminiscent of the sea with brown and gold colors that represent the sand and reef. I shaped this piece using two different-sized palette knives, which I used to create a vivid sense of movement similar to what you might expect in the sea. The viewer's eye naturally moves from one section of this painting to another, following the different colors from place to place, just as one’s eye would naturally wonder about if looking at an expanse of sea and coral reef in the real world. Viewing "Blue Reef" reminds me of the many times I’ve been scuba diving or snorkeling around beautiful coral reefs. The combination of amazing colors created by nature and the vibrant sea life never cease to amaze me. Before beginning this painting, I prepared the canvas with a color gesso to add durability. After completing the painting, I waited one week for the paint to dry thoroughly and then I applied two coats of varnish to preserve the surface. I use this multi-step process with all my paintings to prevent fading and ensure the piece has the long-lasting quality and visual appeal for years to come.
