The sight and the sound of the rolling waves have a calming effect on the mind. In fact, the soothing effect of ocean waves allows you to go into a meditative state. If you ever need something to ease your troubled mind, you only need to go to the beach and watch the waves as they gently crawl to the shore. Sydney-based artist Vanessa Mae brings the tranquil essence and sublime beauty of ocean waves on a canvas. In her series of ocean waves paintings, Mae depicts the comeliness of waves that are both abstract and realistic.
As a self-taught artist with a background in architecture, Mae takes on a unique style which combines abstract, impressionism, and realism. Of course, unique style should be coupled with inspiration to create astounding works of art. Mae gets her inspiration from her everyday life. But the ocean is definitely her most favorite subject, particularly the waves. With acrylic paint as her medium, she meticulously draws layer upon layer of paint to achieve realistic tones of the sea, along with its splashing waves. The graceful combination of blue, white, green, and brown pigments perfectly depicts the ocean foam, aquatic plants, and the sand. Her ocean waves paintings are so realistic that you can almost hear the waves crashing on the shore.
