Michelle Jung“Rocks & Surf”Oil, 36” x 36”
“Rocks & Surf” is a seascape painting from 17 Mile Drive in Pebble Beach, California.
I began by doing on location studies and several plein air paintings. Then I decided to use a large canvas in studio to enhance the majestic quality of the subject matter. My painting process is first to do an under painting followed by many, many layers. In between each layer I leave time for it to dry. This process can take months. I try to use loose but purposeful brushstrokes to capture the movement and vitality of the ocean. My inspirations are the places I live and visit.
