If this image reminds you of raindrops, then you’ll make Carol Bruton, the France-based artist who created it, quite pleased. It’s a sculpture, one of a series in fact, titled Raindrops. This, as well as the other works she creates, play with the notions of the ocean and sky. They adorn the interiors of megayachts as well as fine homes, Additionally, Bruton is the artist behind the stunning sculpture presented annually for the Richard Earp Award, an honor given in memory of a well-respected, gentlemanly broker from Fraser Yachts.
Bruton uses real water on canvas, painstakingly applying one drop at a time for Raindrops. Next, she applies cold glass and pigments to replicate the drops. You can learn more about the series, her passion for protecting the ocean, and more in the July edition of the MegayachtNews.com newsletter.
