Stormy Emerald Sea

Here are a few images of my painting process and time-lapsed videos of my new wave painting entitled “Stormy Emerald Sea”. It measures 100 cm wide and 50 cm high and has a depth of 4cm or 39.5 inches wide x 19.5 inches high x 1.5 inches deep.

Stage One…Blocking out the main colours and light and dark areas.
“Stormy Emerald Sea” oil painting on canvas measuring 100 x 50 cm £350. Shows a large wave cresting in the middle of the canvas with the light coming through the wave turning the deep blue ocean emerald green at the centre of the wave.
Stage Two …. adding texture and highlights to define key shapes and wave forms
Stage 3 …. adding glazes to deepen the colours and enrich the surface. Knocking back the highlight at the front of the main wave

Stage 4 …. glazing with viridian green and cobalt blue oil paint mixed with liquin. Adding more detail to the surface water and the cresting wave. Think I have gone too far on the main wave cresting. Will knock this back when the canvas has dried some. Need to adjust the highlights on the water as they are getting too much and distracting from the main focus of the painting the emerald wave.
