Bryan Collins
9"x12" colored pencil & acrylic on wood

The piece was created with professional grade colored pencils and acrylic paint. The finished work has a few coats of semi gloss varnish for archival protection of the work. The wood cradle is wired on the back for hanging and is .75" deep in case you would like to have it mounted in an open back frame. The sides of the wood are painted black so it looks great hanging without a frame as well. One of the pencils used to create this piece is attached on the back.

My inspiration for nautical themes comes from living most of my life on both the east and west coasts of the USA. I am fascinated with lore of the sea, as well as the natural forms of life inhabiting the ocean. This piece was specifically inspired by lyrics from the song Water by Dinosaur Jr.

If you have any questions about adding this piece to your collection or need additional photos, please don't hesitate to send me a message.
