Sea Waves, at the Beach (Oils)

ocean waves in blue oils, abstract painting,

The blue waves crash.

I’m standing in the cool waters. Shoes up on shore.

Sea Waves in Oil Paints


I do have tight hold of my camera with its zoom lens, securely wrapped around my neck as well.


What, am I doing?!  I’m looking for ‘color’ naturally.

The elusive shot keeps escaping me, a will o’wisp.



Watching the waves.

Almost from within the wave itself, as I edge closer. Zoom tighter.

Delighting in the ultramarine blue; and seeing how the viridian and emerald meld together.




I did capture some color as the waves crashed the surf. There were some lovely and lively photos.

But for today, I thought this painting serves as a better image.  A more interesting capture.

  1. I saw this on Instagram and it hit me as though being immersed in the ocean. I love “instant art” a painting that takes you in the thick of it, the emotion, action and feeling. Bam, you are there. Beautiful as usual. By the way, I love the color and texture, must have been fun selecting them.


  2. I love the range of colour you have in this picture! Thanks for sharing. I have just written a poem called “Waves” on my poetry blog here on WordPress in case you have time to have a look? Have a nice afternoon, Sam 🙂
