My blue seascape oil painting is almost finished. I have not kept track of the total time spent on this painting because I work on other projects at the same time. But I have spent considerable time working on the detail in the water. The swirling water and foam in the bottom half of the canvas has taken the most time.
While working on the rocks in the foreground I paint cool color on the top surface that reflect from the sky along with local color. The water on the rocks also reflects the sky color. I have more detail to do on the rocks and finishing up the foreground water in this seascape oil painting. It is important to step back often and look at your painting from a distance. Most paintings are viewed from several feet back not 1 foot away where the artist is working.seascape oil painting
