Here I have created my own version of a modern mythical Greek Goddess, Amphitrite. Amphitrite is the goddess of the sea, wife of Poseidon. I have painted her wearing aquamarine jewellery, the stone of the sea or ocean where its sits as a crown for royalty. The wave I have represented here is movement or curves of her hair, such dynamic movement in both have similar qualities, supported by the cool tones of blue for the sea.
