Aurora in a Silver Ocean Painting

Seascape, Aurora in a Silver Ocean.

Original oil painting by Clina Polloni.

The first lights of a summer morning brighten the silver ocean of Emerald Isle North Carolina. I was inspired to paint this seascape when waking my doggy at 6:00am. A peaceful harmony of silvery blues.”

Emerald Isle is part of North Carolina’s Crystal Coast. Located in the southernmost part of the Outer Banks, an amazing 200-mile stretch of barrier islands.

Instructions of how to do this painting:

  1. Start by drawing the ocean and sky.
  2. Do your under-paint or imprimatura with a wash of acrylic silver. Acrylics are very good for under-painting because they dry faster. They create a worm color that once you put the oils in the top, they look brighter.

Start painting with oils or acrylics in the following order because it is going to be easier for you:

  1. Paint sky, ocean and beach.
  2. Sign your work of art.
