In his latest series called Aqueous (I and II), artist Mark Mawson from London drips several drops of coloured paint into a tank of water and captures the results on camera. Some people see toadstools and others see huge fiery mushroom clouds like the results of an atomic bomb - but these images are just splashes of paint dripped into water.

Mark needs to be constantly alert and be ready in time to press the button, because these forms quickly dissolve in water. "This is a very laborious process, but the result is worth it", he explains.

Mark plans to publish a book from these pictures.
