Month of Love: Medusae by Ranarh Month of Love: Medusae by Ranarh

My first contribution to 2018's Month of Love challenge, under the theme "Black".
I made a painting ages ago that had the same subject - woman in black with jellyfish - and I've long wanted to repaint it. Perfect opportunity. Keep an eye out for the other contributions, WIPs and sketches on my Tumblr, ranarh.tumblr.com

The jellyfish are gorgeous. It almost makes you want to reach out and give them a big hug. Which is a really unfortunate instinct to have around jellyfish.

I really like the pale colors against the darkness here. It creates a really great mood, which unfortunately I don't think I have the vocabulary to describe. "Ethereal" is in the ball park. Oh well. It's really cool looking, is what I'm trying to say.

Not all jellyfish are bad to hug. And leaving my audience speechless is also nice ;)

Thank you very much. I wonder if all people who like painting jellyfish also treat them well at the beach?

Thanks! Glowy sea animals are so cool. Although we all glow, did you know that? Bioluminescence apparently happens in practically every living thing, you just need the right lightsource because our visible light overshines it.

Ooh, that reminds me of something fun I read recently: www.authorbettyadams.com/betty…

Betty Adams has a lot of neat stories.

I didn't know that - interesting! Our eyes are rather picky when it comes to what wavelengths of light they want to see. :P

Thank you! I really love the way Painter lets me create brushtrokes like oil paints, and shove that paint around.
