Messing About with Paint

The Sea

Oil on Canvas 50cmx40cm

The challenge to paint seas that dance. Carefree, with wild abandon. Yet, restless. Full of power. Spray from the pounding waves, caught in the rainbow hues of morning sunlight.

 Van Gogh’s ‘Seascape at Saintes-Maries’, an inspiration, as is the incredible abstract painting by Turner, ‘Storm at Sea’.

The essence of crating an abstract painting still a mystery to me, but I think by focusing on the first key elements, I have something I can work from. 

Perhaps, I have still gone too far?
