How to Paint a Sea

Want to make your own original abstract art but cannot decide on what you would like to paint? Why not try painting a beautiful scene in the beach?

Close your eyes and take a deep breath. Imagine a beach with very calm blue water kissing the white sands that are set against a luscious green mountain backdrop with the clearest sky that you could have ever seen way high above it. Imagine those smooth waves that gently touch the sand line, carrying a few of those sands along with them as they draw themselves back to the water, and strives hard to return to the shore again. Take a deep, relaxing breath and smell the sweet odor of the sea that surrounds you. Imagine the trees dancing and swaying gracefully to the tune of the warm breeze that brushes past against it and see the leaves as they gently fall down to those powdery smooth white sands. Look up and notice how blue a sky can ever be, with the soft white clouds trying to let the shy sunshine peek through, while sea birds slowly flies past. Feel the rhythm of the wind; listen to the beat of the sea waves, and the warmth of the sun.

Then, slowly take hold of your paint brush and start to paint the soft, clear and blue sky, the luscious mountain, the white sand that curves to the calm sea. Move in relaxed strokes, wavy lines, nothing really rigid or straight lines, nothing really definite. Blue on the upper part, green somewhere in the middle, aqua on the lower left side, and sandy white on the lower right side. Let the smooth and relaxing vibe you have felt earlier flow through your arms to your hands and to your brushes. Remember that what you want to show or paint are the feelings you felt while you were imagining the beautiful and relaxing scene you had just experienced earlier. Take a good grasp on the momentum it had given you.

And if things does not go well, just remember this beautiful quotation: Try the freedom of letting things flow as is the waves are not hitting the rocks, just bounce back and hit again. If not, you may try to buy abstract art paintings by visiting an online abstract art gallery.
