Smith’s designs are not simply realistic renderings of sea life, but rather stylized interpretations, blending the colors, shapes, and patterns of the underwater world into a truly vibrant and unique form. I’d argue that Walt’s Blue Ocean Designs fall somewhere between Guy Harvey’s realistic wildlife art and the abstractions of Terry Dixon’s Funk Art.
