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.
