Watercolor: Sunset

I just spent a lovely two weeks in Port Isaac, in north Cornwall. We had fantastic weather, and I came back desperate to start painting the sea. Here’s the first attempt:

9 x 12″ watercolor and acrylic on watercolor paper. Original available on Etsy.

I was actually practicing a more realistic style and the clouds in the sunset were driving me UP THE WALL, so I just decided to do one that invoked Edvard Munch’s expressionism. Swirly lines and primary colours for the win!
