I’ve been painting the ocean for most of this year. Each painting is a learning experience – getting better in some aspects, struggling in others, and discovering new areas to strive to capture. As I got better with the form of the wave, the movement of the water, the foam, I experimented with textured cloudy skies. And I’m always working towards mixing the perfect color for the ocean – which is different in every reference photo!
A new goal surfaced – to better capture the light. I struggled with it in areas of a few paintings, and wasn’t happy with the results. I picked the reference photo for the painting above because it was all about the light. That’s why I’m calling this one “Light.” I’m proud of the results.
