Ocean Sunset (Beginner to Intermediate)

In this acrylic painting tutorial, I wanted to show how to paint a simple and cute ocean sunset scene. This tutorial focuses heavily on blending with acrylics, which can be a tricky thing. We take it step by step to be able to blend a clean pretty sunset sky that is reflected in the water below.

Times have been tough recently, and staying inside to paint is one of the best things that you can do to keep your brain healthy while social distancing or in “shelter in place” or in quarantine. So here is a little tutorial for you to do a some painting in these strange times. Learning how to paint is a great way to spend your time while you are inside. Try and relax and destress with this calm little tutorial.

In this painting I used only 4 colors, cyan blue, quinacridone red, medium yellow azo, and titanium white. If you don’t have these exact colors, feel free to use any red, blue, yellow, and white.
