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!
Lovely work Peter. Nice to see artwork by someone with talent!
