Oil Painting For Beginners | Ocean Wave Demonstration

In this video I show you how I painted a realistic ocean wave. I get so many questions asking how I paint realistic water so here is an example of one of the ways I approach it. Painting water with oils is different with every single painting, but I hope this demonstration can give you an idea of how to use oil paints! This is just one way of doing it, oil painting is vast world filled with endless possibilities, so don’t be afraid to experiment!

I am an artist residing in sunny, warm [humid] florida! My paintings are heavily inspired by nature and its beauty. I work primarily in oil paint, and sometimes watercolor. I prefer to work in a mostly realistic style and occasionally experiment outside of that. I post oil painting time lapses, painting lessons and tutorials, drawings, art tips, and occasionally artist vlogs where I share bits of my life as an artist. Creating art is my greatest passion and I’m thankful for the chance to share it with you. ♥
