Red Rover - (Copyright Craig Bertram Smith-2012)
Already Inspired by the spectacle of the Great Barrier Reef, it didn’t take any convincing when Craig was asked to paint a GBR reef scene. A wonderland of coral reefs and fantastical creatures at every glance, these coral shelves are alive with a kaleidoscope of colour complete with organisms of different shape, form and size.
The main character in the painting is the bar-cheek coral trout. A predominantly red-coloured fish, highlighted by electric blue spots,
Craig wanted to emphasise a colourful coral reef scene heaving with life, showing different species of fish, large and small, existing harmoniously in their habitat, and drawing attention to a complex variation of coral textures, form and colour.
