Ocean Study I - 6x6 Oil Painting

colorful ocean waves oil painting by Kerri Settle

6"x6" oil painting on archival canvas panel
SOLD

"The world is full of poetry. The air is living with its spirit; and the waves dance to the music of its melodies, and sparkle in its brightness." - Percival

I painted a few of these smaller ocean studies to get loosened up and get ideas for a slightly larger painting. Tomorrow I'll post a similar study.

I dig the desending (decending?) colors! Did I spell that right? Oh, well, you know what I mean! :)

You really evoke a place and time when I have been at the shore. Lovely color and movement.

Can I ask what medium do you use in your painting ?

Thanks Nanxi

I love how simple and abstract it is painted.

Thanks everyone!

Nanxi, I'll sometimes rub on a little linseed oil when I'm painting a new layer to keep things blendable, otherwise I just use paint straight from the tube. I do use a galkyd titanium white paint in place of regular titanium white for quicker drying.
