This is amazing. I've painted the ocean before and I know how difficult it is. I'm loving the many depths of colors showing the movement of the water. That foam on the waves is breathtaking. That bird! Goodness girl you have recreated one of nature's perfections.

    Thank you for you kind remarks. I am amazed that these birds can actually cross the ocean. I live on Cape Cod so the ocean is one of my favorite things to paint,

Lovely paint of the waves and the foam, but if the bird is the main subject, according to your title, the it should be seem better

good technique and creativity

Wow, your painting of the water is done so incredibly well that it looks like a photograph! That is so impressive. I wish I had a six for this one. Even the placement of the bird is like a photograph.

I really like the color of the sea in this one and the albatross creates more interest. The wave action in this shows the strength of the sea. Well painted.

Love the seascape. The waves have energy to them. color is great. I like the use of the rule of thirds. I like the line from the bottom left that takes you to the edge of the image and then changes direction. I just wish the albatross was positioned elsewhere in the image so as to emphasize the crossing.

Comment from Lucas Sizov


This is a beautiful acrylic painting! Unusual vertical presentation of a stormy ocean. An albatross in the lower corner is flying "out the image". It supports your idea and the title. You were able to create a powerful waves using just a few of colors. I admire your talented work! Bravo!!! Good luck in the contest! ! !

Really exceptional painting of a rough sea beautiful in its anger. The albatross is a nice feature the waves are realistic. The foam, the colour, the spray, crests and horizon all very well portrayed . I know, i have crewed in yachts and a trimarang and this looks so real.
