At The Edge
Painting - Oil On Canvas
This is a painting I had done earlier and it didn't turn out quite right so I added changed it a little. It is a picture of the moon rising on a turbulent ocean. The water has cooled off and a storm is about to approach. The reflection of the moon in the distance shows the crystal clear ocean is calm in the distance. The waves, however, portray a windy, breezy night is about to begin. I really enjoyed painting this with the darker colors. This helped make the vibrant lighter colors really stand out. When I paint I usually start with a black canvas. This allows the colors to remain rich. I also do not use any thinners. I prefer the thick paint with broad brushstrokes when I create my scenes. Most of the paintings I do come from actual places. I do not like to make my pictures look exactly like what I see. Instead I prefer to take what is seen in nature and manipulate it into the how I see the world around me. Almost all of my paintings have some form of water in them. I really enjoy painting water because there is so much creativity there. Water has the ability to transform the world thru which it travels. It can also change how a picture is viewed. Darker water tends to give the feel of a cooler day. The lighter colored water makes to picture a warmer. I also enjoy doing larger paintings. The larger surface allows me to capture more of the natural scene and gives me more opportunity to explore my own ideas . Because I choose landscapes and seascapes I have an almost unlimited supply of ideas from which to draw upon. I also enjoy making each of my paintings look original and different not following a specific form.
