It was a pure joy to sketch and explore the palette for this prep sketch for the Oceans series.
After trying several blues, I found that Phtalo was the best one for my eye as the main color. Phtalo Green, Raw Sienna, Raw Umber and Payne Grey complete the palette.
Water has always been such a challenge to see clearly for me to paint, but this year I have decided to make it my goal to overcome it!
I am very excited about starting out on this series on coastal landscapes!
