Class 6— April 28 – Seascapes

'Honeymoon Sea', pastel, 9" x 12"

Even though we don’t live near the sea, let’s take some time to explore some of the rules of painting the ocean, waves, cliffs and sky. Bring a good photo with excellent contrast, a simple subject, and good color.

I'll be concentrating on how to paint the incoming waves, the beach along the shore, and a bit on rocks and reflections. 

'Beach', gouache, 2.5" x 3.5"

'Cliffside View', gouache, 3.5" x 2.5"

'Island Sea', gouache, 2.5" x 3.5"

You're welcome to approach this subject in any medium, any size you like, and on any paper that works for you, although I generally recommend using a lighter colored ground. 

See you on Thursday!
