Gulfscape #3, 8x10" oil
On a roll... painting these bloody waves until I get them right, at least right in my mind's eye! They're all small but just practice for the huge water painting Betsy wants. Years ago, I painted a lot of water paintings. I think these are much better than the old ones. Going to the beach and staring at the Gulf a lot has helped.
Used ultramarine blue, cerulean, perylene red, cad yellow light, and titanium white for this one. But last night, I was inspired by Karin Jurick's palette (watched one of her video's on You Tube). She uses a lot more colors and mixes as many together as she wants. My next wave painting, the one I'm working on right now, has a much more colorful palette, at least three more colors. A stretch for me!
