Hi,

Just finishing off some canvases for an exhibition and a couple are marine art - so I thought I'd share.

All oils, two are 'exhibition size' that is 40 x 30 inches, the last is a little oil sketch just to try some colours out.

Regards,

Mart

Hi Mart,
Fabulous works all, so much movement in sea and sky with beautiful highlights. The ship adds scale and really emphasises the vastness of the vista. Wonderful work!

These are wonderful. My personal favorite is the first... sea and sky... troubled waters... wonderfully evocative.

Wow. Very impressive. These stir up emotions like a fire brings out the arsonist in each of us. You see the power and danger, but are held by pure fascination.

Mart, once again you've outdone yourself. Very powerful, evocative work. When is the exhibition? Good luck with it! :)

Great movement in the waves and sky.

The monochrome really works as well.

Hi,

Just returned fro the show - hence the late reply to some posts. Thanks for the positive feedback.

Got some questions on technique you might help me with - do many of you use glazes in the sea work you execute (obviously oils/acrylic) and if so how do you apply? My working method for glazing sea is paint light and work dark with glazing but interested in alternative approaches.

Kind Regards

Marty

Hi Marty,
I usually go light over dark, no mediums just water, and add in darks again if required in the final touch up stages. Thin layers and lots of them.

Hi Mart
what wonderful wild, vibrant and dramatic paintings, I love them.
I always work light over dark in my seascapes and then do final touchups at the end, in acrylics.

I grew up near the ocean (and I don't anymore) and these really tug at my heart strings. Excellent atmosphere and mood. I love them.
