Original Creation

Blooms by the Ocean

LoriEC 01 Jun 2021

A seascape with some extra color. The splashes gave me a bit of trouble. Added the flowering bushes to add some interest. Fairly happy with the end result.



While I'm not really a fan of seascapes (usually skip over those Bob Ross episodes), yours caught my eye. I think the flowers, rocks, trees, and sand are what did it. It's not just a mass of water, but there's a landscape there. Ooh. Just noticed the distant mountain range. Now I really like it. Very nice painting.

Thank you so much, Alex. I feel the same about most seascapes so I fully understand what you are saying. They sometimes leave you wanting for something more. I really enjoyed adding the extras to this. I really appreciate your kind words.

I agree. Your painting has a good balance between water and land. Maybe that's what is usually missing from seascapes...balance.

I could even see this scene from a little more distant perspective where the mountains are smaller and there are a few more bushes/flowers in front with maybe a bit of green grass in front of those.

Anyway, this is good just as it is. 👍

One last comment...this could easily be framed, sold, and hung on someone's wall. In my opinion, it's that good.

Thank you so very much. Your comments bless me immensely!

I love the fairy tale feeling from your painting. Great job!

In case you will decide to investigate more of the seascapes from old masters visit this link.

They are all wonderful, unfortunately it is a short list of Ivan Aivazovsky paintings but will be a good start to fulfill curiosity.

Thank you Sunnylady. I will take a look at this link. I love finding new ideas and learning from those before us.
