Ocean- Painting #6

6 x 6 in. Oil on canvas panel 1/7/2016


Serenity now...insanity later.

Thought I'd change it up a bit. I've always loved the idea of painting a slice of the ocean. You almost have to float on it, which coincidentally is one of my favorite things to do in it. I felt a bit as if I needed water wings trying to paint it today, but I love the color blue so I dove in. I kind of just wanted to go on and on...I can see how easy that could be with such vast subject. But I cut my time short to keep the paintings brief. They are studies and little dips in all the things I've always wanted to paint. I'm gonna keep up this idea and grab hold of whatever I've always wanted to try and depict.

I have to admit, it's fun to see the day marked by a painting and very interesting to see the lessons you crash through in the making of them. All this knowledge piling up in my brain for next time. I can only imagine what it will feel like months from now.
