Beach Safari

This was a fun little set I did... I was inspired by Riusuke Fukahori's AMAZING "Goldfish Salvation" I saw on YouTube. If you haven't seen it, you must go check out this talent...!!

These aren't nearly as impressive or detailed, but here's my spin on painting in layers with epoxy. It's hard to tell in the pictures, but there are actually shadows created between each layer of epoxy, which adds just a little something... It was a time consuming process, but I love the way they turned out with the bright, fun colors.

I wanted to take elements that normally aren't together and mix them (hopefully well). Each painting in this set incorporates a background/pattern that made me think of a safari animal - then there's the beach elements/animals in the foreground, for a bit of a twist.
