Black Waves – Something From the Ocean

I’ve been painting a lot of mountains and landscapes with my ink paintings.

So I felt it was time to head over to the ocean.

I wanted to make some waves.

Some rocks.

And some movement.

I was a bit unsure about how I wanted to get there.

So I just started adding a wash, and then some determined brush strokes to make out waves.

That went okay, but nothing more.

So I needed to emphasize the waves in some way.

The solution became using a pro marker and some felt pens to define their areas.

I also made the rocks all black, so they would stand out a bit.

I then did a few patterns in the transitional lines, to kind of spice it up.

It ended up looking okay.

But a bit boring.

Something is missing.

But I decided to leave it with that.

So, do you have any suggestions to make it more interesting?

If so, I would love to hear them 🙂

I hope you are doing alright, and that you’re having a good day!

  1. It reminds me of the geological pictures of strata my dad has (he’s a geophysicist who worked in the oil industry), I think it’s just missing something to give it perspective.

    1. Well, I’ve never heard that about a painting before, so that’s cool 😀 Yes, there is something missing. I just couldn’t figure it out. But I think I’ll rename it Strata now 😉

I would love it if you left me a few words
