60 x 40cm Prismacolor pencils on pastel board
My second seascape has reached the touch-up stage and it’s been a joy painting water again after a long break.
The massive wave breaking over the rocks makes for a fairly dramatic scene, but despite all the calamity in the middle distance, there is a good deal of calm in the foreground.
I have added 5 seagulls to “force” the attention to the front of the painting, leaving the rest to play a secondary role.
There is a good deal of activity in both the sky and the waves that are contrasted by the serenity of the foreground.
I am planning to follow-up this painting with another featuring water, but in a different location.
DIGITAL ART NEWS
Yesterday I took my first batch of 16 digital prints to my framer, and we selected 4 that will be framed. I will post some photos when I collect my work.
