Pastel Sea, 10x8 Original Oil Seascape



Despite the title of this painting, it is not a pastel, it's an oil. It's the scene that is pastel. Sometimes the sea and sky are soft colors, which makes for a peaceful painting. In fact, I believe I hear it calling me right now...I need to go down there and walk a while...

I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;
And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea's face, and a grey dawn breaking...

"Sea Fever" by John Masefield
