Painting the Sun and Ocean Reflection

This is Seascape ‘Sun Strokes, Clouds and Ocean’.

Painting the Sun just slightly after sunrise will deliver a totally different palette of colors.

Logical, I know :) though it’s important to realize painting in the morning or evening will deliver paintings with more yellows in for example. So if you like lots of warm colors/yellows: change the time you paint!

Fun how my early seascapes were perceived so ‘grey’: True, in the past I often did not choose the morning or evening to go and paint, but what was also going on: I had an old PC, and the monitor not calibrated right. Ever since I upgraded the gear (and again became a Mac user) my imagery improved as well.

As a third (and most important) differentiator: you’ll also get more ‘color-sensitive’ over time. You’ll see different colors in nature when painting, you’ll mix different colors, you’ll edit your pics differently. It’s huge.

Maybe it’s like this because all the clouds had disappeared and the sky was so clear.

Painting a sunrise or a sunset from life always is an average of a few hours. It’s not painting 1 exact moment.


Here’s a video I am proud of, it delivers a lot of info most of you would like to know about:
