Alien Life Forms (Lady Elliot Island, Queensland) Original Oil on Canvas board 61cm x 46cm
“The Purple Boulder Coral of Lady Elliot Island is a beautiful thing to see. Apparently, the colour comes from the coral exuding a sunscreen as it lives in the shallows at low tide and experiences the sun in shallow water. I have painted several works incorporating the Purple Boulder Coral as a subject – such fun to paint. They are true gems of the coral reefs. Quite rare I believe which makes it even more special to paint. The colour, the form, the strangeness of these ancient creatures makes for something very special in my underwater series”.
