Stormy Seas

Stormy Seas

Acrylic on 21x29cm canvas. I am not at ease with sea paintngs, I find getting the movement of waves etc quite difficult but I thought I would post it anyway to see what you think. The colour of the sea is a bit light for stormy weather if I were to do it again, I would darken it. I used a picture from a book, Paintng with Acrylics by Arnold Lowery for reference. Thanks for looking,

cheers Pearl

very good

I like your picture very much. the rock, the waves all indicate the motion as intended. I agree with the comment about a little darker water, but you should be very proud of what you have accomplished.

storm

i can feel the movement of the sea as she crashes against the rocks(which are wonderfully done) . The sky , to me , suggests bad weather . Try it darker and please post it . It's how we learn ..sketch , paint and do it all again and again .

I have a computer file where I have the same painting done at different times ... i'm generally delighted with how much i've learned .

The clouds and the waves are leading the eye to the rocks, which is very good.
Nice, bright colors.

Waves
by: Dorothy , Carluke

Hi Pearl,

I really like how you've rendered the waves crashing on the rocks throwing up spray and also the different colours in the rocks.

Maybe the sea could be a shade darker with some deep green tones but it is still fine the way it is.

Regards,

Dorothy
