Bring the Sea Home: An Easy Guide to Help You Build Your Art Collection

Are you someone who feels a deep connection to the ocean and marine life? Do you find solace and inspiration in the beauty of the underwater world? If so, you're in the right place! As an ocean artist, I understand the profound impact that ocean-inspired artwork can have on us. Whether it transports you back to a tropical vacation, evokes memories of somewhere you used to live, or simply brings a sense of peace and tranquility, collecting ocean art is a unique and rewarding experience.

Before you begin collecting artwork, here are 3 powerful tips to help you get the most impact out of your collection.


1. Explore Different Styles, Mediums, and Colour Palettes:



Ocean art comes in a wide variety of styles and mediums, from realistic seascapes to abstract interpretations of marine life. Take the time to explore different artists and their unique approaches to capturing the essence of the ocean. You might find yourself drawn to:


  • Realistic seascapes that transport you to your favourite coastal destinations

  • A hybrid of abstract and realistic interpretations of marine life that evoke a sense of wonder and mystery

  • Whimsical coastal scenes that capture the carefree spirit of beach living


2. Authenticity and Quality:



When evaluating ocean-themed artwork, consider the authenticity and quality of the piece. Look for artists who are passionate about the ocean and marine conservation as their love for the ocean will come across in creating more meaningful pieces. To ensure authenticity, check for artists who include a certificate of authenticity with every piece. The certificate should include the name of the artist, the title of the artwork, and the date it was created and/or sold.  Pay attention to details such as:


  • Brushwork and texture that mimic the movement of ocean waves.

  • Composition that draws your eye into the scene and creates a sense of depth.

  • Overall craftsmanship that reflects a commitment to excellence and attention to detail.




3. Building a Collection that Speaks to You:


Building an ocean art collection is a deeply personal journey that reflects your unique tastes and experiences. Whether you prefer bold, vibrant colours or serene, tranquil tones, let your collection be a reflection of what the ocean means to you. Mix and match different styles and mediums to create a dynamic and harmonious ensemble that brings the magic of the sea into your home. 



Consider the following:


  • Creating a gallery wall with a mix of seascapes, marine life portraits, and abstract ocean art

  • Incorporating ocean-inspired accessories such as shells, driftwood, and nautical accents to enhance the coastal vibe.

  • Rotating your collection seasonally to reflect the changing moods of the ocean throughout the year.
