A moment of solace under the waves...
It always makes a great change to find traditional paintings within our gallery, especially when they are so delicate and atmospheric as this one. Take a look at The Disappearance Of the Girl by the elusive Claudia, better known as ScarletGothica. What do you think?
The piece was created with a combination of acrylics and coloured pencil applied to watercolour paper, giving it a beautiful sense of texture and depth. There's a real emotional quality to the painting that seems to resonate through every element of the piece, which becomes especially prevalent in the interplay between muted and vibrant colours.
You can find more of Claudia's art across in her gallery.
