35 Examples of Excellent Water-Themed Digital Art

Water is one of the four Classical Elements, the other three being Earth, Fire and Air, which make up the four known states of matter: solid, liquid, gas and plasma. Of those four elements, water, arguably, is the least understood. For instance, the depths of the ocean are vastly unexplored and hold many mysteries for the human race. Many myths are based on the oceans. Water is life preserving and can also be devastating; it can be fun to play in, or it can be dangerous.

Conclusion

The thing about water is that it is timeless – water doesn’t change or evolve. Any image portraying water will be recognized as water-themed now and in a thousand years’ time. Water lends itself to art in many forms, ie: underwater, on the water (boats, ships), beside the water lakes, rivers, waterfalls, etc. As water is life-sustaining, it is represented in many, many works of art – but then water is all around us in real life too!

I hope you enjoyed this selection of water-themed art, do share your comment below.

    There is some really nice images in the post, but some of them – especially some of the photo manipulations and 3D works – just look cheap and cheesy. The landscape digipaintings look good. The Iceberg Ship and Arctic Ship are perhaps my favorites accompanied by Octopus Diner. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
