Breaking Waves

"Break 1" 3 1/2 x 8 1/2 Soft Pastel on Sanded Paper

“Break 1” 3 1/2 x 8 1/2 Soft Pastel on Sanded Paper


Painting the ocean has been a favorite for me lately.  I love the translucencey of the water.  I love the peaceful feeling I get when I paint waves.  Even though the waves I paint are usually rough, it still has a calming effect on me.

I can almost feel the spray of the ocean, and the smell of the salt air.  What could be better?

I chose to paint this on a different size paper than I usually use.  It is only 3 1/2 inches high by 8 1/2 inches long.  I thought it would be fun to do two paintings of waves that are the same size.  

Tomorrow I will post the picture of the other painting of this size and show how they could be matted and framed together.

Stay tuned!
