Sea oil paintings

Oil paint is my favorite paint.  I don’t know any other paint that is as versatile as oil paint. You can apply it in thick layers, but transparency is also an option. Another advantage of oil paint is how fast, or rather how slow, it dries. This allows you to work on a surface much longer than with, for example, acrylics. 
In my work gradients are quite common, gradual transitions from one color or shade to another. Because of the fact that oil takes rather a long time to dry, it is excellent for painting these gradients. In my seascapes the first layer of the sea is often a gradient, with a lighter color close to the horizon and a darker one on the bottom of the painting.
