db Waterman Profile picture Mother and child resting on steps in the pool.
The original artwork is Acrylic painting on a large canvas measuring 120 x 80 x 2 cm

In 'TAKING A BREAK', a serene moment of family bonding is captured beneath the shimmering surface of a swimming pool. The predominant aqua tones, gracefully blended with soothing white and accentuated by subtle black, create an ethereal underwater world that invites viewers to immerse themselves in the tranquillity of this unique aqua scene.

The composition revolves around a child and a woman, their legs hanging gracefully in the clear, rippling water. The subtle play of light and shadow on the tiles adds depth and mimics the dance of sunlight filtering through the water's surface.

The woman and child sit side by side, their limbs submerged in the weightless embrace of the pool. The water gently distorts their shapes, giving the scene an almost dreamlike quality.

The overall atmosphere is one of calm and unity, while the aqua colours evoke a sense of peaceful fluidity. The viewer is transported into a world where time seems to stand still, allowing a contemplative appreciation of the simple yet profound beauty in the bond between parent and child.

I remembered that as a young girl I so much liked to cut images from magazines to paste them into school agendas, scrapbooks and even on my bedroom door. Add to this the fascination I always had for walls filled with old posters, flaking paint, scrappy billboards and weathered paint, it opened an unexpected door for completely new opportunities. Completely unintended I found a new way of working, I felt pleasurably and comfortably at home in. What started out as copying old walls with worn out posters has grown into many series of new visual storytelling. Not simply just eclecticism, but bringing together many seemingly incoherent story lines into one completely new story, my own personal story. Initially it lacked the one thing that is important to me, the transparency that normally only is possible with the use of watercolor. The unforgiving layering of transparent watercolors is a challenge I would not want to miss and after a lot of trial and error I finally succeeded in getting the collages as transparent as a watercolor. Every layer of paper, oil, acrylic, pencil, crayon, ballpoint, watercolor, ink, charcoal and whatever else I use, remains visible in the artwork. You can imagine it made me feel the queen of the ball !
