Final Two Artworks in the Cayman Inspired Series

I'm so pleased to complete my series of four artworks that were inspired by the Caribbean paradise of Cayman! The final two are "Underlush" and "Siren's Sound" below...

With each one, my intention was to capture the island’s distinguishing features: the incredibly clear turquoise waters, the famous blowholes, stunning sunsets and the abundance of tropical luscious palm trees.

Siren's Sound
I felt peaceful and serene while ‘researching’ and creating these artworks (not hard when in Cayman!) and spent time asking people about their stand out features... I had a couple of speciaI requests to add a rooster into one of them! 
There are only ten of each in existence, they are mixed media, combining photography, hand painted layers and vectorised illustration with hand finished with extra details, like gold leaf, so each one is unique.

My Cayman Inspired artworks

I have been visiting the beautiful Caribbean Island of Grand Cayman for the last few weeks. While here, I have been busy creating a series of new tropical inspired artworks. The first two are now finished!

'Clamorous Cove' size 90 x 90 cm (35 x 35 inches) 

This one is called 'Clamorous Cove', and was inspired by the blowholes found on Grand Cayman Island... It's a scenic area where seawater rushes through openings on the rocky shore, creating natural fountains.
Watching this force of nature happening feels like a celebration.... an unexpected explosion of water, like confetti, fireworks or champagne corks popping!
So I wanted this piece to reflect this feeling of celebration, along with the warmth of a Caribbean sunset.

Over The Boardwalk was inspired while exploring the West Bay, a quieter part of the Island, walking on looking out for colourful wildlife.

Both artworks are available either on paper or on canvas. more info HERE
