Artists who paint water…. Eric Zener…

is another great artist that specializes in the figure moving in water. He is classified as a photorealist, but with the element of water even straight lines become exciting and abstract. He was born in 1966 in Oregon to a father who was  psychologist and a mother who played in the San Francisco Orchestra as a violinist.  After finishing college in 1988 he took off around the world bartering his paintings for room and board but now lives in San Francisco.

He became interested with bathers as the subject of his paintings while living in Spain. For his series of mixed media works he didn’t the figure directly on the canvas but used a photographic transparency that was mounted on wooden box and covered with resin.

Another great artist to learn composition of the figure and movement of the figure below water.

Keep finding inspiration!
