Read from the Book

Welcome to the incredible, diverse world of painting the ocean, coast, and  sea. In this book you'll explore how to paint several different seascapes in oil, using a number of simple yet effective techniques. In the process, you'll discover the versatility of oil paints, which are forgiving and produce wonderful color. With their long drying time, oils are ideal for blending and can produce areas that are smooth or textured. Oils are an ideal medium to portray the ever-changing moods and drama of this very special subject: the sea.

About the Author

Martin Clarke is fascinated by water. A native Australian, he has spent most of that time surfing, swimming, and soaking up his muse: the ocean. Although Martin came to painting late in life, he is driven by a constant strive to make each piece his best. When asked where his inspiration comes from, he talks of the beach on an early summermorning: "how the surf pounds the sandy shore's back, how the sun glistens off towering wave faces, and the sea spray catches light, sparkling like diamonds."Based in Mandurah, Western Australia, Martin is surrounded by the Indian Ocean, the Peel Harvey Estuary, and the Dawesville Cut.
