The sea does to me the same as an open fire does... you can just sit in front of it and get lost in it.
I have done hundreds of photos and still haven't really captured the essence of the sea... the strength of the water for example I could not catch on the photo ( you would need the noise with it maybe...)
I think one of my next paintings will be again 'the sea', but this time a dynamic one ...and really really big.
I did a small painting on a telephone book , just to play with the colours and the old texture.
But first the photo:
the painting :
|Sea. 14x20 cm. Mixed media on paper|
and here also an older painting :
