Cold Water, Cold Sky




Winter arrived so suddenly that I have stopped going to !Khwa Ttu until we have warmer weather again. This is what the ocean is looking like at the moment. Every day of my life I can just go outdoors and stare at it, but from one day to the next, it never looks the same.

I hope you can see the tranquil pool in the foreground where the water meets the beach.

  1. A lovely and dramatic sea view, Marie! The powerful waves combine with your rendering of the bleak (but not off-putting) sky to convey an impression of chilly, or even cold, weather. Very well done!

  2. Beautiful Marie. The ocean is ever changing. When I display all my seascapes together, the colors differ in each one and so does the mood of the sea.

  3. The permanent feature of the ocean is the way it keeps changing every minute and the endless waves keep you transfixed! I can feel the cool breezy air and the chill water here!

  4. Wow, Marie, this one speaks to me. The cold, the movement in the surf, the sunset - I could not stop staring at it. I can feel and in my imagination see how the light changes on the horizon and the surf break.

    Thank you very much, Carol. I know, I have noticed that in your work.

    Thank you so much, padmaja, that is what made me do three views of the ocean this year!

    Thank you, Anita. I'm happy when I succeed in what I set out to do! I have not seen you on blogger for a while, I will visit your blog to see how it's going!

    Thank you, Sherry! I cannot agree more!

    My post had suddenly disappeared. But I have saved the comments I had on e-mail, then cut and pasted them here.

  15. Thank you Diane and Maree, I managed to save everyone's comments!

    I know what you mean, Maree. One can just stare, bu I am not always sure of what I see, and must try the scene again and again. Thank you for your comments!

  16. Oh Marie, this is just beautiful. You can feel the kind of day it is.

  17. Ah, thanks, Barbara. The real painting looks quite good if I have to say so myself. But then again, it is important to go on and on and look closer each time!

  18. A beautiful seascape Marie, it takes me right there to that still pool with the cold sea crashing behind it. I'm sorry to have been so scarce for so long - enjoyed catching up on the fascinating !Khwa Ttu posts. I'm so thrilled to see there is still wonderful art being produced there!

  21. Thank you, Thea! I love that idea. Will you choose one of my paintings that you like? Then we can start planning the swop? People go to Pretoria from here on a regular basis! Looking forward to hear from you!
