Station #10...........oil on panel............11x14"
In order to banish the holiday blues and infuse a little warmth into my cold, wintery days, I painted a beach scene using a small color sketch and photo reference. It was overcast that morning and the clouds began to evaporate at around noon which caused the background mountains to appear veiled and mysterious. I wanted to create a sense of vast space and isolation by using the deserted life guard staion as a focal point.
although they look a little puckered from wading in the freezing water too long!
