This magical spot is found on one of the Jamaican road trips I've taken. The massive Fig Tree, with its hanging Liana vines and numerous air plants clinging to its branches, stands like a guardian at the edge of the Blue Hole, a popular swimming spot. We had a dip in the inviting, natural pool to cool off. I used acrylics with large blocky brushwork, simplifying shapes and looking for rhythm and pattern. I've attended several of Hashim Akib's workshops, which has helped to develop this way of interpreting my subject matter. I used lots of cerulean and yellow to create a feeling of hot and steamy sunshine.
