A violent thunderstorm came through this morning and woke me up (as I lay in my metal bed, haha). This one came right off the Gulf, headed north with purpose.
Yesterday I intended to finish off my seascape watercolor, but by the time I got home from class, my son had sent me a text about Prince, and the painting was forgotten. I dragged it out just a little while ago. Put on Patrick OHearn’s The Cold Sea’s Embrace from his So Flows the Current CD and went to work.
This was from last week’s class. I didn’t like the color of the water, so I basically scrubbed out the foreground and walked away.
Now I just needed to add white foamy waves without messing up. Decided it didn’t matter, it’s just paper.
Note: This reminds me a bit of the waters off Pacific Grove – definitely more California than Gulf Coast. I was working from a photograph, local waters. The rocks on the right? In the photograph, those were jetties. But somehow I ended up in California.
