“Under the Sea” by Tropical artist Susan Coulis.
I am a tropical artist working out of my home studio in Bradenton, FL. I paint on unique surfaces such as palm frond shucks, crab buoys and more. I also paint wall murals and am a published author. My medium of choice is acrylics and my style is bright, colorful and whimsical. I am truly livin’ the beach life thru a tropical world of color.
I love creating art that is tropical, colorful and whimsical. This wall mural was done for friends to compliment their backyard pool area. Painting on textured stucco can be a bit of a challenge. I compare it to painting on an English muffin, lots of nooks and crannies to fill in! I am fortunate to live on the Gulf Coast of Florida where the beauty of my tropical surroundings inspire me to paint in my signature color block style. Originally, this was to be two small portholes with a tropical design in each. Once I got started, it just grew and the owner’s loved it. They gave me artistic license to “go big or go home” The mural measures 23′ in length and 6 ‘ in height. I hope you enjoy my little piece of paradise!
