SUNRISE ON THE ATLANTIC, 20X24, OIL

Purchase here
595

A few weeks ago I posted a 5x7 version of this scene. It turned out very well, sold, and I was encouraged to do a larger version. This is the 20x24" version.

The beauty of the ocean is timeless and ever changing.  In this scene, I tried to re-create that wonderful moment when the sun first breaks over the horizon.  Everything is calm, the waves, the wind, the birds, and the sky bursts with pastel color.

This is a beauty, the colors are sublime a piece one could sit and look at and never get tired of.

Hi Carol, your landscape series is gorgeou. Love the light effect here. The previous post is also excellent, more difused.

I think they are both great. I looked at the earlier one and it has some thicker paint areas, and that spontaneity that seems to go with smaller paintings. I keep trying to transfer that to larger paintings, but it is difficult. With this picture, I feel like I could be in a sailboat, slowing rolling in the waves making way in the wee hours.
