Ocean Sunrise

Froggie 17 Jul 2020

I have been recovering from back surgery since March, so I wanted to see if I was ready to paint again. Ocean Sunrise was my first oil painting and it was an amazing experience for me. I wanted to see if I could recreate it without the tutorial or looking at my first painting. Turned out quite nicely (although I left out the birds this time), and it I got through it with relatively little pain. (Exciting!!) The first version will always be my favorite because it gave me confidence and sparked my love of oil painting.

Side note: I gave this painting to my physical therapist as a thank you for helping me so much, and for just being an incredible person. THANK YOU CATHY!! ❤



Great detail in the grass area! I love it.

Thats a great story Froggie, lovely painting, the grasses look amazing

Froggie this is awesome! I am reading heart shaped from that grass! It is amazing! Glad you are recovering! This is awesome gift!

Thank you for the compliments. Always encouraging. Such a fantastic group of people on this site. Bless each and every one of you. ❤

Sunnylady (love your name btw ☀️) It does appear to be a bit of a heart shape. Unintentional, but I feel like the world needs lots of love right now, so it is appropriate. You have a wonderful eye for these things.

You are a script liner brush superstar.

Love the contrast and the light of the sun how it plays off the billowy clouds.
