  • Description

    AN ARTIST WHO PAINTS FISH IN THEIR NATURAL HABITAT -- UNDERWATER, HAD AN EXHIBITION IN A DEEP TANK AT CALIFORNIA'S MARINELAND RECENTLY.

    HE IS CURLY LOOMIS, A DIVER AT MARINELAND, WHO TOOK UP UNDERWATER PAINTING THREE YEARS AGO AT THE AGE OF 45.

    STANDARD OIL PAINT IS USED, BUT HE DISCOVERED THAT LIGHT AND COLOUR VALUES CAN BE DECEPTIVE BENEATH THE SURFACE.

    IT TAKES ABOUT A WEEK TO COMPLETE A PORTRAIT BECAUSE WORK IS SLOWER UNDERWATER -- AND PERSUADING THE FISH TO KEEP STILL IS A PROBLEM.

    THE ONE DIVER EXHIBITION FEATURED A DOZEN PORTRAITS AND DREW QUITE A CROWD OF PEOPLE -- AND FISH.
