I love painting the ocean and seascapes, waves in particular – there is something magical about capturing the power of water. I’d like to say in advance to anyone affected by Hurricane Sandy that I’m sorry to bring up the ocean so soon after this recent storm, it’s just that this scene was next on my easel to be completed.
A fabulous photographer, Li Newton from PMP, shot a wave scene that was one of the most remarkable I’ve seen. Oil pastels offer an array of beautiful colors for painting the ocean, although sea-foam can be a challenge with ops and I usually end up saying I’ll never paint another water scene. But in the end, tenacity wins and I find a way to show the magic of the sea – I’m always glad I didn’t give up.
Been scrolling through your paintings and so far this is my all time favourite, but then the sea fascinates me.
Excellent paintings, you’re very talented.
Thank you for your generous comment and taking time to review my portfolio of works – means a lot and is much appreciated!
Very welcome and thanks for following ny blog ♥
Incredible image! Would love to be able to move into the more realistic form of art, I can never seem to get my landscapes/backgrounds right! I’ll stick to cartoons until I’m happy with it, can’t wait to see more of your work though!!
Hi Aaron – thank you for your kind words and visiting my blog. You’re very talented and will find your way – today your cartoons rule. Enjoy!
Beautiful painting Mary !
I love the water running over the beach and the different colours of the water.
Hi Petronette! So nice to hear from you. Thank you for your feedback, glad you liked it!
I love all your paintings, but I think this one is my favorite so far!! 🙂 You’re so insanely talented, I feel like I’m standing right there on the beach.
Hi Calee – you are so kind. Thank you for your comments – I’m a bit overwhelmed and appreciate you so much. I’m so glad that you feel the energy with the painting ~ Mary
Yes, the sea is a bit of a sensitive subject at the moment with the hurricane… I’m nevertheless a huge fan! 🙂 Well done!
Thank you! So appreciate hearing from you ~ Mary
Strange how something so beautiful can be so devastating. I like the way the horizon on the right balances the frothy crush of wave.
Thank you so much for commenting!
Outstanding! I’m glad you didn’t give up, too! 🙂
Thanks Cyndi, Appreciate your feedback!
