About this painting
A small painting inspired by a graph of emotions, from stability to instability and stability again.

Water and the sea often symbolise emotions, because these chemical parts of the brain are highly fluid. In this painting there are lots of watery and oceanic parts and hidden shapes.

Technical details
As fits an idea about spontaneity, the painting was painted wet-in-wet, with an ultra-thin layer of light blue painted into with more opaque colours. This is a very small painting and several layers were applied to darken the tones and add more detail.
