I have lately been interested in picking up speed in my paintings, not so much because I don't want to spend the time painting, but rather as a challenge to myself as a painter. I am pretty confident in my ability to hunker down for hours painting in fine details, but I am less confident in my judgement for laying down expressive strokes of color and just letting them do their job without fuss. This boldness is part of why I appreciate painters on here like @Moai; it is a quality I aspire to in my own work. I mention all of that for two reasons:
1. This is my speed-record for a Bob Ross painting. About 2 hours and 45 minutes, including cleanup.
2. There are passages in this painting that I like, particularly around the rocks, that happened in one go where I applied the paint and just let it do the work.
On another note: this is my third seascape and while I didn't have a particular artist in mind that I was trying to emulate (other than Bob), I was consciously trying to make the water patterns a little more rough and chaotic compared to my previous seascapes. This is more how I have experienced the sea personally and part of what I love about it.
