Realistic Water Paintings

Beautifully realistic looking art, that make you feel like you could wet you hands, if you reached out and touched the paintings.
Irina Cumberland has a great way of describing her work, placing it into a setting, a lot of us are familiar with.  Her words are spot on and the image she paints, both, with words as well as with the paint brush, really give a soothing and relaxing feeling.  "Picture yourself standing on the shores of a vast ocean. Feel the sand between your toes. Smell the salty air as you breathe in. Hear the hush of each wave as the cool water rolls over your feet. See the reflection of the sun majestically painting its rays onto the surface, a palette of blues and greens swirling together in front of you…"  Cumberland explains that she spent 8 years at medical school and it was a really stressful time.  The nights were just as bad as the days, so to unwind she painted, sometimes through the night.  Now that Cumberland is an artist, she says that she is so much more content and that, in her words:  "now my life is as peaceful as it can be".  We all have to make a living, but finding something that we love to do as well, is something that should not be an impossible dream, or a flight of fancy.  Do what you have to do to make money, but never stop looking for what makes you happy.  Have a look at the video below, to see how she achieves the fantastic finish to her paintings.
