Hi All! I've really enjoyed creating large abstract water canvases lately. These are the last two art pieces that I created, and the wave painting is one that I had finished previously, but just recently stretched (as it was just on a canvas roll). I was thinking of heading into another painting like these for my next subject, as I love creating movement with the blues, greens and whites. But...I decided to enter a landscape/seascape competition, and had to change tact a little.

As it is a landscape competition and had to reference Mornington, I could of course still use the beach as reference and inspiration, but instead of a close up abstract I felt that I needed to pull back and show a landscape/seascape view. I still wanted to keep my loose brushstrokes and abstract style but worked more closely with a particular reference shot. I wanted to show a sunset on the water as the lighting is so beautiful and found this shot that captured the beach at sunset perfectly.

Here are some progress shots (from top left - bottom right). After many hours of work, I finished it in time ready to enter the competition in time. Now just the wait to see if I am accepted.
Here's a short video of the painting in progress:
