Marginal Way Maine Seacoast watercolor painting

This painting uses sunny color to depict the roaring surf along Maine's southern coastline. The Marginal Way is an awe-inspiring walk that traverses part of this coast in Ogunquit, Maine.

A couple of gulls rest on the rocks before soaring out over the water looking for fish. Behind them the surf rolls in crashing to shore with tremendous power.

I used this painting as a study for a painting demonstration I did for an art guild. Here are some pictures of that demonstration:

Below is how far the larger demonstration painting progressed. One hour is just not long enough for this artist! If you look carefully, you will see that it already has a different look than the smaller work. I used slightly different primary colors and changed the composition of the waves. No two paintings are ever totally alike.
