The healing power of the ocean

This painting is called “BY THE SEA“. Feel the healing power of the ocean.

I created this painting by using layers of bold colours creating the curve of the wave, white splashes, and a seagull flying above. I’m forever in love with the ocean and the colours of sunset. I combined these elements into one painting.

The beach is symbolic of fun, reflection and escape. Can you feel it too?

BY THE SEA - Sandra Burns ART - nature art, looking along the curl of a wave, with pink and yellow reflections on the water, white splashes of water on the crest of the wave, and a seagull flying alongside, blue, green, yellow, pink, water, wave, sea, splash, surf, sky, seagull, summertime, memories of summer - nature art for sale, original acrylic painting on stretched canvas

Through my art, I’m exploring the healing power of nature – and bringing nature inside the home.

This blue ocean painting is a 20 x 20 cm (8 x 8 inches) canvas and I really enjoyed adding layers of acrylic paint to form this curling wave. I love the way the white contrasts against the blue, and the pink and yellow reflects on the water. And I had great fun mixing colours together to form this image of freedom and fun.

Do you feel the healing power of looking out across the water on a warm summer’s day? I hope you can feel this from my painting.

This painting is available at just A$240. Prints and giftware are also available.
