#265: 320L Aquatic Garden Farewell

Pavol Kulanda Cookstown, United Kingdom


The moment I first laid eyes on the artwork I was immediately struck by its beauty. The arrangement and management of elements are exceptionally well-executed and the color scheme is beautifully composed. If the undulation of the waves were even more pronounced it might have made the piece even more stunning but its current form is more than enough. I'm delighted to have experienced such a magnificent piece of art. Congratulations!

Healthy and very impactful aquarium.
Natural coloring earthy tones and very healthy plants are the main characteristics of this beautiful work.
Well-defined shadows with a lot of personality contrast with the green lines created by the very well positioned vegetation.
The point of attention would be the flow of the layout which is mainly delimited by the diagonal that comes from the upper right portion and crosses the aquarium towards the lower left portion. However the trunks on the left side of the aquarium conflict this flow. Nothing that compromises the harmony of the layout but I confess that it is a bit annoying and takes away the natural strength of the main flow.
In short a job very well done by someone who knows what they are doing.
