my favorite style of painting.
simply love it <3
Salvador Dali, Woman With a Head of Roses, 1935.
By Maggi Hambling, I have always had a proclivity for art made about or relating to water, the sea being the epitome of power and beauty, these paintings could not capture it more perfectly. You get a feeling of energy and power from just looking at them, the brush strokes and texture the water seems ready to wash right through the canvas and into the space they inhabit.
“The older I get I identify with the land which is being eroded, the sea is like time - you can do nothing about it. Death will come, the sea will come. It’s a metaphor for life.”
