Again, here are two photos of the same painting. The one below I did with one of our painting groups. I even worked on it a little more afterward to try and get it more finished. I don't really finish a painting with the group lessons. I do that later. So with that said, since I first did this one I have been doing some more self education, finding videos to watch, reading books.  It is an ongoing process. The above painting is a re-do of the below photo. Not a different painting but the same one just revised. I think I like the top one better. No, I do like it better. It is more satisfying and that is a sign that it is time to stop playing with it and call it finished.

12 x 6 inches
Oil on canvas textured board

This is my first serious attempt at this type of ocean painting. I am pretty pleased with the ocean, but I think I am going to work on that dark cloud in the sky. It isn't sitting right with me somehow. Maybe I should stick to snow paintings. The closeup shows glare on the texture so it looks polka dotty, but it really isn't. This is the first time that I have used this textured board and I think I prefer the smooth surface. But for now, I am letting it rest and will get back to it later.
