Hi Kids, I painted this seascape from Pierre Labeau's lesson on tips for seascapes(Quik Tip#16. It's done in h2o oils, 16x20. This painting looks quite boring to me so I left it in the closet. My idea now is to use this painting for my red boat project. My question for the crowd is can I turn this painting into an impressionist work using dabs and dashes? I hope someone can show me digitally how to accomplish this goal. Thanks in advance! You guys are the best!

Here, I just added 100% uniform noise to the image. As you can see there are now many interesting colours to work with. Zoom in and take a look at the colors used. If you have about a million Sundays you could render each spec of color and get a great Seurat! (If I had the software Painter6 I would have used the Instant Van Gogh filter).

I like it. I like the composition and the way you applied the medium. Henrik is right. Try to play with the colors, say, of the see. It may include the Ultramarine blue, Cobalt Blue and Cerulean Blue. Inn its darkest places the see may have a violet hue, so add a bit of Alizarin crimson or Deep Red. Close to the beach it may have a spots of warm yellow. Look at the sky and find some yellow or ochre there. Try not to make the distant objects, the rocks here, too dark, so that they won't come out. Concentrate on the beach.It should be a nice painting.
Good luck!

I think you could easily put a red boat into the painting and create an impressionist look. I'll try to do something with it in photoshop and send it to you. Not sure how to post a pic here in the forum.

Hi Mal,
Here's my really lame version of a boat in your painting, plus some dots and dashes.
My tablet's driver is messed up, so had to use the mouse, but you get the idea. I took so long to get to this, you've probably painted the entire English fleet into the painting by now... http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/wink.gif
