I just came back from a short vacation in tropical Riviera Maya, where I spent much time trying to capture the shapes of sea waves in my sketchbook. There is something very relaxing, almost therapeutic in watching the waves.
Now, back to work and catching up with the real world...

Happy New Year to everyone!
I am starting off with something new. In addition to another acrylic, I decided to try figure painting. Two out of five attempts turned out decent. Someone asked me how I would paint the new year. I remembered part of the lyrics of a Bulgarian song "naked, unapologetic and young"...

|First wash of the painting|
I remember how intimidated I used to be when painting on a large piece of paper. Now I like it, it makes me feel more inspired and excited.

|Minimalist Seascape 4, oil on canvas board, 20 x 15 cm|
Oils feel quite different. You have to use so much paint and it is hard to layer it without wiping the paint underneath. It is hard to apply the rule of thinner paint over thicker layer, if you want a fluid background. I don't know if I would have the patience to wait for days for the oil to dry before I can do the next stage... Well, that's in general. The little seascape above I did in one layer, with carefully adding the white surf and the seaweeds on the sand with the palette knife.
And the same subject in watercolor - just a simple wet-on-wet wash
