With a special admiration for the ocean and a love of painting, Vanessa Mae, a Sydney based artist, creates amazing pictures of splashing waves. She uses acrylic paint in her depiction of waves which are deeply abstract and realistic at the same time.
All her paintings are composed of several layers of paint, meticulously placed on each other. She works mainly with blue pigments because of her love for the ocean. This color is accented by green, white, and brown hues for seafoam, sand, and aquatic plants.
To Mae, her art is more about method and approach. She sees painting as large scale depictions that can form ways to escape reality. Mae didn’t get any formal training but has still managed to carve a niche for herself in this competitive industry.
