Before and After Seascape
I also started painting oil seascapes in 1981. This was a Bob Ross seascape class. I was so proud of this painting and had it hanging on my wall for a long time.
I took a long time off from painting to work and raise my family, but then I started again.
I practiced and practiced and took classes from other artists who painted seascapes including Joyce Ortner, a famous California International Seascape Artist.
This second painting was done about 27 years after the first one.
Again, as I tell my students over and over, see how much better you get with practice. Keep painting and practicing. You will see a difference.
