A seascape painting is an artwork that portrays the sea as marine art. Related to the landscape, which depicts natural scenery like forests and mountains, a seascape reveals the artist’s perception of the ocean itself. As a Victoria, BC seascape artist who is fortunate to live by the sea, when I paint a seascape I am looking to share the perspective of the ocean itself, the ocean’s viewpoint.
An original seascape painting has a calming effect with viewers as we subliminally picture and feel the natural rhythm of the ocean.
While my seascapes do show a visual viewpoint that focuses on particular ocean scenery I know this is limited. An underwater painting even depicting waters with exceptional visibility can only show one view. When I paint the ocean I strive to help viewers feel that there is so much more that what I’m showing them. That the ocean is as much a cognitive and spiritual perception of a mysterious world that is out of sight for us, even when we do have snapshots of what it’s like beneath the surface of the sea.
