The essence of "Deep Blue Sea" is the presentation of colour that can be achieved in lithographs. Printed on grey paper, which has been wholly enveloped by a variously inked sapphire blue, the water appear softly luminous in its tonality. In her rather large, imaginative interpretation, Kenojuak vividly dramatizes the commotion of these marine animals. The precision of her drawing of this aquatic cast is admirably rendered in print by Niviaksie Quvinanaqtuliaq. The breadth of detail in the char, clams, and snail is splendidly retained by the lithograph medium.
