FREE ONLINE Ocean & Beach Paintings – For The Beginner Acrylic Painter
Oceans and beaches are a popular subject matter to paint with acrylics! Lovely blues, turquoises and sand colors compliment each other very well. And subjects such as flamingos and sea animals can add a nice pop of color to an ocean back drop.
Painting a beach is fairly simple. I like to do a simple palette of cerulean blue, bright aqua green, white and a sand color such as unbleached titanium. I always use cerulean blue for the sky and add a whole bunch of white to it in order to make the sky look light blue. Then for the ocean, I like to use aqua blue and titanium white.
Painting a beach sunset is a lot of fun too! You can use a palette of purples and yellows for the sky and then a darker blue for the ocean, such as ultramarine blue. Then for the foreground, add a silhouette of palm trees.
I love painting sea foam coming to the shore like in this Flip Flops on the beach painting!
There are so many ocean underwater sea creatures you can paint as well!
