– Living Coasts ‘Azure’ restaurant
Semi abstract 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.
