“Sea Colors” is full of action featuring an ocean wave breaking near the shore. Pretty color throughout this 8 x 10 inch oil paint on panel. Aqua, sea green and blue colors dominate this art. Orange peeks through from the background to complement the blues. The action of the ocean waves can be felt in this original artwork. Spray from the breaking wave and foam trails were applied with brush and palette knife.
Inspiration for Sea Colors
Inspiration for this original oil painting is from my frequent walks on the beach in Fort Lauderdale. Florida. It seems like every time I see the ocean it looks different from the day before. I take in the sights and sounds of the beach. It can be similar to meditation. Noting the tides of the ocean, what the direction of the wind is coming from. What birds are on the sand or in the air. I look for the sea colors in the waves. How the sea color changes where the ocean is deeper versus the shallow areas of the breaking waves. Observation is the key when I am painting the ocean waves.
