FASCINATING NATURAL PHENOMENA
A storm is one of the most fascinating and dangerous natural phenomena. The strength of the winds and the height of the waves are always unpredictable. Sometime it passes as quickly and unexpectedly as it comes. First, it is sunny and quiet, then the next thing you know it has started to rain heavily with strong winds and high waves. The world around you transforms itself into a dark and gloomy place with lightning strikes and thunderclaps. It’s a great challenge for both ships and people.
What are the best paints for canvases depicting the sea before the storm? If you want your pictures to look real and have some volume, oil paints are the best. What are the right colors for a seascape? You will be absolutely right if you say:
- Blue and green with all their shades in order to depict all of the beauty of the sea;

- Yellow, orange and red, because no matter what after a storm passes, the sun will always rise again and amaze us with its wonderful combination of colors;
