wave painting underway by PJ Cook


After viewing the wave painting in oil paint on canvas from the previous post, I decided to change the breaking wave in the top half of this marine art painting. I wanted a natural looking ocean wave with a look of ACTION. After all that is what an ocean wave is, powerful moving water.


Wave Painting Details

I reworked the shape and colors in the wave, going from the turquoise colors of the previous version shown above to a more subdued green.  I think the wave has a natural look and feel now. I am not finished with the seascape wave painting yet. I will continue refining the water and foam and continue painting the rocks. These wave paintings take a long time to complete with all the detail in the water.  I’m working on another wave painting at the same time. The other painting has the wave breaking on a sandy beach and it is a long horizontal format. I will be posting the newest wave painting here on my blog in a few days.

If you have any comments on the two versions of the wave painting shown above send along your opinions and I will reply here on this blog. If you would like to receive blog updates just fill out your email in the box to the left “Subscribe for Blog Updates”.
