About the Scenic Art:
The most challenging aspect of this design was the floor treatment. The paint elevation was a very detailed photograph of the ocean floor taken from underwater. The amount of variation in sand, water depth, light refraction and overall color made a tremendously complicated source to recreate in paint. We relied on carefully mixed colors, meticulous attention to the water’s highlight patterns, and layer after layer of paint to give this treatment the depth and variety it demanded.
