With one stroke and a heavily loaded brush, create a wavy pattern where you get blobs of paint and thin lines. Then apply a lost and found edge technique.

Ok already I see I did this wrong. I used left over paint thinned.
Will attach my line any way and maybe get advise.

On the last day of the Seascape course, I understood you to want us to paint a continuous wavy line with a brushload of paint, twisting the brush to make thin and thick lines. Then I thought you wanted us to use a different color of paint and negative paint into the continuous wavy line to make an interesting pattern. I think I am confused with the lost and found edge thing. I understand lost and found to mean blurry edge and defined edge. I tried doing this, but decided I didn't understand what you really wanted. Could you explain again, please? Thanks, Kathy

Are we going to do the lost and found on the wavy pattern line or on a new line? I intend to try this and I presume one has to use a flat brush of some kind to get the wavy pattern to show up better?

I feel the parallel lines are too close to being a highway pattern. You are not twisting and turning your brush. Back to the drawing board!

Yes

Johannes,
"Yes" to what? Rosemarie asked whether the lost and found was to be on the same line or a different line. Apparently you want us to do several lines and NOT the negative painting into the lines that I mistankenly thought you said at the end of our last class? Sorry, still confused:confused:

Here we go. I used a 90 lb paper, feeling a bit cheap:wink2: I painted many papers but this one I think had the best result. If I am on the right track I will try on thicker paper.

Top one is the best but they are all still too parallel.

So when painting these line I need to move the brush in a melodic or graceful line movement? I confess that I did that very sparingly.

Look at your top line. See how none of the top and bottom protrusions run parallel? The rest 'VISUALLY" not scientifically are parallel.

The lines are too parallel visually.

This is better than the other submissions but still the lines are parallel. The second half of the middle form is good though.

This is a prime example of what I was looking for! There is a lot of variance in the two bottom and top lines.

When will Johannes' last class, Painting Seascapes, be available for purchase? I paid $9.99 when I registered for the class. I was unable to watch all of the classes because of the poor connection with UpStream.
Thank you, Artistic License

I usually takes several month before Northlight makes a class available for purchase. You will get a letter from Johannes with a code when it is time.

Hi Jo-
thank you again for such great classes!
I have a question about depicting the ocean (at the horizon) in seascape paintings. Is the ocean grayer, bluer, colder, and lighter at the horizon (in daylight) with no distinguishable line or other difference?

I've seen paintings and photos where most of the sea had green-blue hues, but had a thick "stripe" of grayed blue in the distance and horizon line.

Then, in other paintings and photos, I've observed just a uniform paling of color, temperature, and value.

In other paintings and photos, I've seen what looks like a thin very pale blue stripe just at the horizon line.

Can you help straighten this out?

Also, what will your next course focus on? When will it start? Can't wait!!!:clap:
