Moonlit surf - Bill Alexander

Dirk1968 05 May 2023

Today it was time to paint a seascape again and in a narrow time window. That's how I chose this painting by Bill. It is interesting that it starts on dry canvas with Phthalo Green, everything else is made with Titanium White and a knife tip Cad..Yellow for the eye of the wave. The canvas is in my preferred small format ..I can only recommend the video. It is educational, fast and brings a lot of fun. You actually only need a 1 inch brush to prime, a fan brush and the knife possibly. So here it is, my version of " Moonlit surfβ€œ and i hope you like it.As always totally fresh from 20 minutes ago.
Canvas, Black Gesso, grinded 240/400, no liquids, 18 x 24 cm (7.09 x 9.45 inch)Time 1,5 Hours
The second picture underneath is after 2 days drying



Exceptional! Love the colors and the wave is so powerful! Love it all!

Amazing, I have this on my list for long time already but saved it for a small time slot. I think this can be done very fast. You did very well.

Great result Dirk for on a dry canvas, I have tried it once but with bad result.
