In this art studio vlog:
I copied this small study after one of the seascape paintings by russian artist Ivan Ajvazovszkij (1817-1900). Oil painting on hardboard, 2020.
It was challenging and also fun to paint the form of the waves and the translucency of the water. I made it alla prima, or wet in wet, that is in one go, from start to finish.
Although there is no strong lightsource because of the stormy and cloudy sky there is an even ambient atmospheric lighting of the scene.
