Balmy Beach

Umagaan 08 Aug 2021

I had lots of fun painting this one. Just like Bob says, painting really made me happy. I'm finally for once really satisfied with the way the foam on the big wave looks. I painted it with a fanbrush instead of the filbert I usually use. So much better. Thanks for the tip Mgiese84 😁🤗 I love the color of the water. And the way the wave is curving and splashing into the rocks. I gave a lot of tought into the placement of the palm trees because I really didn't want to cover the wave or detract from it. The only problem I had was the yellow color of the sky. I mixed black and white gesso to get a grey one, but when I put the indian yellow on, it looked kind of green-ish. I added some titanium white and some bright red and it's better now but I just don't understand what happened 🤔
All in all I'm really happy with this one. I think I'm in love with seascapes 😍

Oh, I like this one a lot! I really like the colors, they have a softness to them that I just love! The back wave is super neat and realistic as well, amazing work!

Great job! One of my favorite seascapes Bob did. And I think you did a very nice version. P.S, The fan brush worked nicely.
