Seascape Sun and Fog

Flame from Sea.

The day started sunny, and when you see large mist clouds forming you must be in a complete rush to finish the painting, because you know all sunniness will be gone in 40 min. or less!

We call it ‘Sea flame’ here. A sudden change from a blue sky and sunny to total overcast and cold.

I could finish shortly after the fog had covered all of the sunlight.

It this happens in Spring or Summer most bathers are quick to run away, often it just takes a few hours, the sun will come out from under it. But it does get cold!

Beginning of the day

To this:

The fog is then not only covering the sun but the complete view!
You can’t see the ocean, dunes, anything anymore.

You know I say painting in grey weather is just fine, well, fog is a different thing. It might work with passing figures, cliffs and rocks. But flat beaches then do get a bit boring :)palette_seascape_654
