These stunning underwater paintings by artist Samantha French capture half submerged swimmers in a pool. French's brightly colored art works are incredibly realistic and make observers want to go for a nice summer dip.

These playful pool paintings were apparently inspired by Samantha's swim-filled summers growing up. One of these lovely summer inspired paintings features one swimmer gently floating backward while another dives to the bottom of the pool. In another of these gorgeous underwater paintings someone coming up to the surface for air as bubbles escape their partially closed mouth.

In these submerged swimmer paintings, Samantha uses mostly shades of blue, orange and green to bring these summer portraits to life. On a hot day, there's nothing more refreshing than jumping into an ice cold pool. These brightly colored paintings make observers want to do just that.
