How to Paint an Underwater Ocean Scene in Oils

This painting time lapse shows the process of creating my new large underwater oil painting “Tranquility”, inspired by my Florida friend photo.
The original water painting measures 48×48 inches and is available for sale on
Here I offer an insight into my technique and hope that all my artist-friends will find it useful or at least entertaining. I strongly urge you not to make copies of this painting for commercial use (as it is copyrighted) but you’re most welcome to try out some techniques I taught myself over the years. I used the following colors to create this underwater painting: titanium white, phthalo blue, viridian, burnt umber, Payne’s gray and Naples yellow, . I also used Liquin as a medium.
This painting took me 3 sessions x 4 hours and I let it dry a week in between them.
