Artist’s Notes on Painting Seascapes
From grade school on, boats and seascapes have fascinated me as subject matter for painting. Not living near the ocean did not hold me back as I poured through library books for reference on my favorite subjects. Certain places visited as an adult were instrumental in perpetuating my love for nautical art. Palm Beach, Newport, Race Point , Cape Cod, Virginia Beach , Alaska , Japan and many cruises are a few places that come to mind. While being in several storms at sea , fear can be sublimated by the sheer beauty of nature. While leaving Seattle en-rooted to the Korean War, Our troop ship encountered a storm that caused sea sickness in most all troops. I could not wait to be permitted out on deck to study the monstrous sea. I memorized every detail of the construction of waves and variations of color. As an artist, these experiences were golden opportunities and have enhanced my whole career. Recently, I wrote a chapter on “learning to see” in my book, “ The Brush Slinger” chronicling my life as an artist. On my crew ship through the southern Caribbean, we encountered a storm that was repeated a few weeks a later on another trip which nearly capsized the whole ship. However on our trip I was able to juggle my watercolor art kit and do some successful small paintings of this storm at sea. Other passengers seemed surprised that anyone would be able to paint as the ship was pitching so violently. An artist is trained to work in adverse conditions, but perhaps a parallel of this would be a storm chaser. We have a variety of ocean scenes within our marine paintings gallery.
