underwater scene, with lower shell and fossil images in ‘relief’ texture.
This painting is designed to provide a meditative backdrop
to a relaxing meal. The 'Azure' restaraunt sits on the very
edge of the rocky shore like a ship at sea. It is part of the
Paignton zoo's "Living Coasts" which
is home to animals such as seals, penguins and various coastal
birds. The seals and penguins can be viewed through specialised
windows set below the water level. With the ocean at the
foot of the 'Azure' restaraunt I wanted to bring it inside
through the painting.
