AMPHITRITE was the goddess queen of the sea, the wife of King Poseidon. Some say she was one of the fifty Nereides, others an Okeanis, but most simply describe her as the female personification of the sea: the loud-moaning mother of fish, seals and dolphins. As such she was essentially the same as Thalassa. When Poseidon first sought Amphitrite's hand in marriage, she fled his advances, and hid herself away near Atlas in the Ocean stream at the far ends of the earth. The dolphin-god Delphin eventually tracked her down and persuaded her to return to wed the sea-king.


*Credits* When I seen the beautiful model here:[link] I knew I would have to paint her. The grace of this stock photo inspired me to paint a graceful Sea nymph. I used This mjranum-stock as reference for Amphitrite.

I had a lot of fun painting this one even though it took me weeks to do I am happy with the results. I hope you like it and see some of the magic I felt while painting it.
