Ocean Surf pastel painting

Ocean Surf

 Day 14 of the 30 in 30 painting challenge

5″ x 7″ pastel painting

I painted this same ocean scene a couple of weeks ago in acrylic (to the left). I was very happy with the outcome and the simplicity of the composition. I thought I’d try it with pastels. The surface of the pastel paper is very smooth, whereas the panel that the acrylic was painted on had a texture. I think the two paintings each have a different feel because of that.
