I was really excited when Kat Skinner first announced the ocean theme challenge for May. I love the ocean and enjoy painting beaches and ocean scenes. Then, a few days after that, I got a commission to paint something ocean related, yet totally different!
My client sent me a photograph–a stunning, awe inspiring photograph, of the offshore oil rig where her husband works. The sky was dark and misty with gray clouds. The water, a beautiful navy blue, was broken up by choppy waves which battered the oil rig standing there, impervious to the storm.
I couldn’t wait to start painting this!
View the video below to see how I did it.
