The Calm Before

Share

Old painting from '07. First time I ever used oil. I'm not incredibly fond of this, but there is something I like about it... Although you probably won't see what I see from this crappy and weirdly bright digital version. Looks better in real life.

Original Size: ~16 in. x ~20 in.
Medium: Oil Paint

Very nice and pleasent

It needs a "GLARE" on the back ocean just to show more light coming in from the sun or moon, and it is bright and I found this picture paining to be very pleasent and settling so you did a nice job here, even if its an older piece, keep up the fantastic work.

More glare and shine off the ocean.

Looks almost like a photo! The sky is a strange shadw and the end of the water (where it goes dark blue) seems a bit unnatural, but the ground is just perfect, and the nearby sea looks so inviting. Nicely done!

I totally agree with you about the water and the dark spot in the sky. This was done a long time ago and I wasn't really sure what I was doing at the time, but I'm glad you like it all the same. Thanks for the review!
