Artwork Details:

The water-themed sister series to my Arcipluvia scenes, are my Aquapluvia artworks. These paintings depict rolling waves, while staying very much in the style of the Arcipluvia series. Though there is a sense of calm, through the use of cooler tones where these works could be close-up ripples in the water, there is simultaneously an air of danger or aggression which we might associate with larger, more engulfing, waves.

Arcipluvia is a name derived from the archaic word ‘arcipluvian’, which translates to an ‘arc of rain’, more commonly known as a rainbow. From this, 'Aquapluvia', my seascape series was also born.
