'Breath Hold' by Namyr 'Breath Hold' by Namyr
Title: 'Breath Hold'
Media: Oil on Canvas
Dimensions: 36" by 24"

Artist Note: 'Breath Hold' was probably the most fun of my collection to paint. The entire painting was a gamble starting from the beginning. It is actually covering another painting and holds at least a half inch of dried oil paint. It wasn't until the very end of the painting that I added in the light rays coming through the surface of the water. I felt as though it needed something, so I quite literally dipped the brush in white paint and hoped it would turn out.

Figured since I was active on my old account (which I had forgotten the password for ages) I would upload all of my new paintings and stuff from my new account. :)

I figured it was inspired by what you see while diving! Still to get that same impression onto canvass takes a lot of talent!
