Daily Painting, Palette Knife Art, "Reel Her In" by Carol Schiff 8x10"

This is the second time I have painted this scene.  The first time, several years ago, was a small 5x7.  I wanted to paint it larger, but couldn't find the image on my computer.  When I finally found it...I didn't have the size canvas I wanted to use (14x18) so, because I was frustrated I did it on the 8x10.

I suppose this means I will repeat the process again at some unknown point in the future.




This time I painted with a palette knife and brush.  I like the texture that can be achieved with the knife.  I also have added some great "ocean" colors to my palette.



Who knows....maybe the next time I paint this scene, it will be an abstract!


This is the first painting.  Do you have a  preference?

Small Seascape Painting, "Florida Dreamin" by Carol Schiff, 6x6x1.5" Oil

If you are fighting the snow and cold today, this small seascape painting might help you get through the day.

Purchase here
85 + shipping

It's a small  view of the ocean from east central Florida.  I love the repetitive action of the waves and could watch them roll into the beach for hours at a time.


It works well, just sitting on a shelf with a seashell or another reminder of your last trip to the tropics.



The scene extends around the sides of the canvas, so no framing is required.

I took a trip to Jetty Park at Pt. Canaveral the other day.


  That's where all the cruise ships dock and head out to the islands.  The weather was perfect, mid 70's, and I came home feeling like I had been on a little mini vacation.  Maybe this small seascape painting will help you to feel that way too.
