I have always wanted to do an ocean painting in Maine and especially one on a foggy day. I was inspired by Winslow Homer's work.
This is the first pass. I have deliberately painted the foreground rocks a bit warmer and sharper than the rocks in the back, leaving the back ground edges fuzzier and the paint thinner. I also am enjoying the greens and purple blues of the water in contrast with the orange and gray blue of the rocks.
I found this video on YouTube that someone shot at the very spot of my painting. It is very beautifully done. Enjoy!
