Oceanides

Oceanides
watercolor

Oceanides is a mythical name for water nymphs. This painting is inspired by the movement of the surf as it nears the shore. That activity of the surf often surprises and delights me as it splashes and sprays, and seems at times to be controlled by some mischievous being. And of course watercolor is the perfect vehicle for painting this uncontrolled activity of water since so much is left up to chance when using this media.

so much energy and movement :D

I know I probably sound like a broken record with my comments on your wave paintings, but they all have a lot of movement to them and it really impresses me you manage to do that with all your paintings :)

Thank you Jennifer! I do try to create compositions that expresses that tidal motion. I am glad that they read that way. Your comments mean a lot!

I hear splashes of water through your painting. It looks full of natural life
