This project has been a little more frustrating than fun for the most part.
Painting a landscape is tricky. It is hard to make it look semi realistic (is that what I want?!) or on the flip side, abstract but still ocean-like.
My underlying desire and purpose in my paintings is to express how I feel.
In this case I feel peace and connection as I contemplate a beautiful sunset, however I am not entirely convinced that this emotion is translating through.
Perhaps painting at the beach in real time would help?
Despite this, I have never painted a landscape before in my life, not that I can remember anyway..so it is a good first effort!!
