plein air seascape

Hello,
This is the first painting I have posted on the Marine Site. This was done off the cliff walk in Newport RI in October. Most of the painting was done on site, I did rework the foreground in the studio. Still not completely happy with it, but I am afraid I would do more damage than good be reworking. C & C welcome. mark

Re: Plein air seascape

Hi Mark,
Welcome to the Marine Art Forum
Great to have a PA work here, I would love to see more. I think PA seascapes would have to be one of the hardest PA challenges.
This is a wonderful piece, really good colour harmony through the work and a nice sense of movement in the water.
Thanks for sharing and for exposing the possibilities of PA in a marine envrionment.

Hey Mark!

Well I must propagate the echo and say that the movement is great! I especially like the water in the foreground - those colors are right on - and the breaking wave in the background. Very commendable work!

Encore, encore!
Paul

Re: Plein air seascape

The water and sky are beautifully done, very believable. The splash of waves showing behind the rocks and the greenish seaweed in the foreground are great.
However the rocks need something, not quite sure what, though. They don't look wet enough, maybe some light reflectioned on the tops where water would be standing. Or maybe they need to be lighter in value as they go off into the distance, as if there were mist in the air.
I'm not much help, am I?
I live in a coastal town, I'll try and look at our rocks tomorrow.
