The ocean has always been a place of joy for me. As a child, I had some of my best family times there. As an adult, I still have some of the best family times there. Not surprisingly, my favorite color from childhood is ocean blue. Here’s how my piece came together:
Randomly smeared paint.
I found this lady and the waves in the paint. White paint simplified the background.
Green paint to tie into the green in her dress.
The green paint I put on top loosened the white paint below it so I used a palette knife to scrap some of the white and green away to let the blues peek out.
Her dress needed something- so I painted over it with blue Twinkling H2O’s to deepen the color without loose the detail.
This quote was just what I needed today! After gluing down words, I ran an oil pastel around the edges giving it just a touch of texture.
