How to Paint a Sunset in the Ocean

Sunset in the Ocean.

Painting Class Taught by Clina Polloni. Lear how.

Seascape-Sunset in the Ocean

Seascape-Sunset in the Ocean

This sunset in the ocean was painted in a beautiful coastal beach of North Carolina. A good peace for the painting classes. Learn sunset clouds, sand and waves wreaking in the rocks.

Instructions:

  1. Start by drawing the seascape.
  2. Give a washed of acrylic gold to the canvas. Acrylics are very good for under-painting, they create a worm color that once you put the oils or acrylics in the top, they look brighter.
  3. Next paint with oils or acrylics in the following order: sky, ocean, sand and finally the rocks.
  4. Sign your work of art.
