The Swimmer

The Swimmer WP

“There is something peaceful about a lake in a deep valley. There is something very beautiful about watching the highlights created by the evening sun as it calm water and glistens on the wet body of a beautiful girl”.

I have experienced this scene and have always wanted it to be the subject of a painting. There is something magical in the contrast between a sunlit object and a dark green background, be it in a forest or hills surrounding a deep forest or lake.

In this digital painting I wanted to create a sense of peace. I also wanted to give a slight sense of uneasiness. The girl is looking away somewhere, dreaming of getting away. The only time she has freedom is when she is swimming. But always there is someone waiting.
