"Dawn On The Beach"
11" x 14",oil on canvas
I arrived before dawn...waited for the sun, then roamed the beach at Treasure Island taking pictures for subjects to paint. This is one of three paintings from that magic morning. In painting it, I applied techniques of "juxtaposing" colors, which consists of applying warm colors next to cool, and brushstrokes of direct compliments next to each other.impressionistic beach paintings
