The ocean is one of my favorite things to visit and to paint. As a Californian, the ocean is a part of me. This scene could be anywhere on the coast, though, no matter what country. I created it as an example for my ocean painting classes so that my students would be able to see the depth and stages of waves moving towards land. I love the light teal that we see as the sun passes through the peaks of the waves. The gradation of the depth of the water is a lot of fun. As always, the small waves lapping on the shore is one of my favorite touches. So, whether you live near the ocean, or you just wish you did, this piece is the perfect addition to your space.
