Pastel Seascape

Sunnylady 30 Dec 2019

Sand dunes did not fit and I decided to make the beach scene. I dont like sky as lower clouds should be further not closer in the look. On the photo it looks worse than it is. I dont have many seascapes yet and I should not have had been lazy to watch anatomy of the wave episode before painting this one.


I think it's very good. I struggle with the big waves. I just love seascapes. I need a lot of practice. Good work you!

Thank you Froggie! Starting with this painting I have been thinking a lot about the clouds and how to make them more real. I think I improved but still not there. This perspective in the sky is something challenging...

About the waves they are difficult, indeed, the key is value change. The "anatomy of wave" episode breaks things down for the waves. Just watch it it will be helpful from theoretical point of view. I think for my next seascape I need to promise myself to watch it before attempting seascape.
