Minimalist seascapes

Seascape 1, acrylic on canvas board, 30 x 23 cm

Seascape 2, acrylic on  stretched canvas, 50 x  40 cm
My first attempts with acrylics. So far no big surprises. It is easy to make smooth color transitions, similar to the wet-on-wet watercolor washes. Paints dry fast so no risk of fussing and fiddling. And no need to preserve the white for the crashing waves. I am not sure I know what I am doing, but I've been enjoying it, and that's what matters.

Wow, great first experiments! I can imagine how satisfying it must be not to think about preserving the whites. :)
