An original oil on canvas by popular artist Hamish Blakely.

Hamish says: "Adopting William Bouguereau’s ‘The Bathers’ (1884) as my inspiration, this new piece shows two beautiful women flaunting it as nature intended while they relax in a quiet spot on the beach. The bottles of Coke and 7UP provide the flavour of contemporary culture, as do the bikinis, sunglasses and elegant footwear. I was drawn to the two bathers primarily because of the composition. I love the two different heights; one sitting and the other standing. The flattened pyramid of the rock feature behind them also creates a very pleasing shape and it breaks up the backdrop."
