Artist Creates Realistic Ocean Paintings Despite Her Fear

The ocean is a muse for many water-loving artists. The challenge, however, is to capture its movement. Californian designer Andreea Berindei does just that by rendering the different states of the ocean in realistic acrylic paintings.

From crashing waves to a slow rising tide, she explores a unique experience in each canvas, using her masterful skills to make the water as realistic as possible. But if Berindei excels in the painting of water, his relationship to reality is much more delicate. “What not many people know is that I struggle with thalassophobia, the fear of large bodies of water,” Berindei told My Modern Met.

“As a painter of water, I’m amazed that I don’t experience the chilling state of mind that this body of work could trigger,” she shares. “But my water painting process differs because even though I struggle with thalassophobia, it somehow helps me get the base coats of the deepest shades of blue, going up with the shades and nuances that build them, adding glints of delicate detail and movement with every stroke.” Berindei enhances his vivid depictions of the ocean by juxtaposing them with equally vivid and ethereal skies. As a result, she captures the whole atmosphere of being at the beach.

“We all have gifts hidden underneath, waiting to be discovered and developed,” adds the artist. “But until we take the time to ask ourselves why we were put on this Earth, these gifts lie dormant. It depends on us. When you choose to discover your gifts, you are in a unique place. You are about to discover what you were born to do, what you are or will be passionate about doing.

You can buy original paintings through Berindei’s online store and keep up to date with his latest creations by following the artist on Instagram.
