I've been painting a few storms of late
I did this one in early March, but very quickly disliked the slanting caves, which just didn't look at all right. In the middle of the month I went at it and changed it to the one below
First I brought an area of green fields on top of the cliff down to the sea level, then felt they didn't work so I took the right side and put sea in there, then it all came together. I never plan my paintings, I never know how any of it is going to look when I begin, I just paint and it all forms on the canvas
Here's another examplke of a storm. It began with a red sunset, which I soon grew tired of, and put in mountains. There was more rocks in the foreground and pretty soon they went as well. The house took awhile to paint in, just getting the size right and then adding people on the beach in front of it. I spent ages on that area. The boat with the men rowing for home came together quite quickly.
