The underwater paintings by Boston-based artist Jessica Dunegan are absolutely remarkable because of her use of resin. The use of acrylic paint and epoxy resin creates a layered effect that adds depth to the paintings, adding a surreal quality to them.

Using epoxy resin to create the underwater paintings means that each individual piece takes quite a lot of time. In order to get the desired effect, Dunegan has to intricately create each layer by adding the paint to the resin. Such a time-consuming process is proven to be worth it by the stunning end result of the paintings. The water becomes so hyper-realistic that it appears to be captured using a high-powered, slow-motion camera. These paintings just prove how special distinct art can be as new ideas are constantly being put to use. Stats for Layered Underwater Paintings Trending: Older & Buzzing
