About Sandra Douglas
I have always been fascinated with nature, especially water. While living in Canada, I painted realistic landscapes for many years. Living full-time by the ocean in Florida has given me the inspiration and desire to make the transition to paint Contemporary ocean works. The freedom and movement of water connected with the reflection of the sky allows the viewer to visualize them simultaneously. The realistic bubbles float on the canvas allowing continuous depth and space.
My creative process begins with imagining something dropping into the ocean. The spray opens and the depth, movement and energy begin. The canvas is painted with oceanic colours in oil. Once this dries, the next step is the wash. In the final phase, the bubbles are painted adding shadow, refractive light and finally the highlight.
