The Sea

Ocean-painting-by-Stevyn-Llewellyn

I’ve been working on several new paintings recently inspired by some weekend drives to the shores of Oregon. Some plein-air studies have yielded more substantial works in both size and intensity. The one above is based on a wave formation I photographed.

For this work, I limited myself to only using pallate knives as opposed to brushes. The result is a much more rough and visceral look, which has an imperfect energy to it. I want to convey the force of the water, and the medium is a good way of depicting that. Also, the act of painting itself is more spontaneous, kinetic and energizing.  Painting is this way allows me to let the paint be paint, and permit the medium to describe the scene, as opposed to attempting to replicating it exactly. This approach may lead to more in this series.
