Easy Seascapes...

This painting is a practice painting of an easy seascape. Now I know I tend to post some of the more complicated paintings here on the blog (and also teach them in my classes sometimes), but you really need to get the basic transparent wave down by doing these less complicated seascapes. Am I saying it takes practice? Oh yes!!! Now that doesn't mean that you can't paint something worth hanging on your wall while working on your technique. But don't be a "one hit wonder"! The idea is that YOU are in control of your brushes. That you can consistently produce the transparent wave whenever you want, wherever you want on the canvas, and facing it on any side, color etc. You're doing this because you love it right?! So paint, paint, paint!!! Once you're comfortable with this, you can move on to work on the more complicated stuff. Happy Painting!!!
