Ocean Wild.                           -santiago Del Valle.

The ocean is uncontrollable and it continues to amaze us with its beauty through its wild waves or its serenity during times of stillness. This gallery includes art works that depict  the characteristics of the movement and colors of the ocean, as they show how rich and full of emotion the ocean waves can be. 

Rocks at Belle-Île, Port-Domois is a straightforward painting by Monet,as he is known for his landscape paintings; as seen here, he captures not only rocks but also the ocean and an orange-pink sunset in the background. His brush technique adds texture and shows the movement of the water with small waves.
Ricketts Point, Beaumaris depicts a scene of men, women and children spending the day by the shore. Some women are seen collecting sea shells and a child is playing in the water. Charles Conder uses the element of light, and shows how the water is calm with a few waves here and there on the shoreline.
Evans Bay shows a fisherman on a boat and there seems to be a broken dock beside it, as well as some mountains in the background. Since this is a bay, James M. Nairn portrayed well the appearance of the water being still, with little movement occurring other than some ripples in the water. He incorporates light to reflect the sky on the water, and it appears that the sun is setting with all the warm colors and because there are some pink tones in the clouds.
The Wave by Gustave Courbet shows a crashing wave with a very overcast sky. He uses very well texture with every brushstroke to emphasize the roughness of the sea. With this technique to create realistic choppy water we see how much movement there is, and the direction in which the wave is moving.
We can observe that there is a lot happening in Shipwreck in a Rocky Inlet. There are some passengers seen escaping a sinking ship close to some large rocks, and then offshore there is another ship sailing through some rough tide. Carlo Bonavia paints in a very realistic way,and creates a lot of movement occurring in the water, like the waves crashing on the rocks, which directs our attention to the passengers that have made it to the rocky inlet.
Rocks at Jávea. The White Boat depicts a scene of the coast of Jávea, Spain with a white boat floating in the ocean. The painter uses very bright colors to highlight the rocks, and emphasize the clarity of the mediterranean. The brushstroke technique shows the water flowing and what looks like small waves.
The Rock of Salvation depicts a scene that appears to be divided in half. On the right side the sky is a mixture of red, orange, and yellow. It has a deep red sun that looks like its setting down, and it is creating a red reflection over the water. On the left side the sky is blue with a few gray clouds, and a moon up high surrounded by stars. The reflection on this side of the water is a light blue from the moonlight. What separates these two sides is a tall rock in the middle and at the top appears to be a small cross. Colman is very detailed and delicate with the way he created the waves. The reflection on the water and the way he captures the light on them is what makes the waves look like they are in motion.
Stormy Seascape by Charles B. Ferguson shows the waves crashing on the seashore against some rocks. In this painting we can see the way Ferguson uses the paint to create a rough texture, and this is what creates the appearance of the foam and water splashing at the crest of the wave.
Seascape-Isle of Shoals depicts a sunny day with some clouds in the sky, and the water splashing as it collides with the rocks by the beach. Frederick Childe Hassam creates a soft atmosphere by his use of pastel hues. He uses small brushstrokes to create the scene, but this does not affect of how serene the ambience looks.
A Seascape, Shipping by Moonlight shows a scene of two ships in the night. There seems to be a third boat that is being illuminated by the moonlight, and on the right side of the coast there is a lighthouse. Monet uses messy brushstrokes to create the texture of the clouds and of the night sky, from which we see the bright white color to create the moonlight. The ships are mostly black since its the shadow we are only able to see. Also, he highlights the crest of some of the waves and creates small and soft waves for the low tide at night.
