Songs of the Sea – finished

To continue following the path of this work you can see that
I have deliberately left the dark, running, underpainting visible, through the layers of water, as I think this gives the work that mysterious depth in the water, that you get from an aerial perspective.

Songs Of The Sea

Waves are in!

I loved the abstract way the waves wash the top of the image.  It throws your sense of perspective and makes it difficult to figure out just exactly what you are looking at. the waves and sand have been painted in here and there are only a few finishing touches to go.  And here is the finished painting…..

As you can see there has been a lot more depth added to the colour of the painting in both the sand and the sea, to give it a final impact and depth.

SONGS OF THE SEA

As always – I began with an underpainting. – burnt sienna and then blocked in with the French Ultramarine and Burnt Sienna mix as usual.  I have begun with the sand area at the top of the painting.

Songs of the sea - under painting

Under painting

This work is taken off an image I shot while on a helicopter ride one day. Near where I live is a place called The Entrance where a narrow sea inlet feeds into a large lake system.  The day I took this image I was flying of a stretch of dunes and water just to the north of this area.

First layer of the ocean has been applied now

This painting involved several thin layers of paint to establish the almost translucent look of the water. I used a lot of medium with the paint.  By the next post you will see the finished work.
