"The Ocean is Blue" is an abstract painting with a vertical orientation. It predominantly features cool tones such as blues, teals, and touches of green, creating a soothing aqueous atmosphere. The texture appears varied, with areas that suggest complex layering to add depth. The composition consists of a complex interplay of color patches, brush strokes, and intentional smudging, interspersed with more defined shapes and lines. There is a subtle luminosity within certain sections of the canvas, where lighter hues emerge against the darker background, showcasing a play of light and shadow. While the painting does not clearly depict a specific scene or subject, its abstraction allows viewers to interpret the imagery personally, potentially evoking feelings of tranquility, contemplation, or the natural interplay between water and light.
