Beach Day


20″ x 24″, Oil, $800


Painting 34 of CHALLENGE 56


Countless layers of paint make up this scene, as did

countless compositions.

Four days of painting, scraping, paper-towelling,

lightly adding layers, and ever so slightly tweaking,

and finally I think I found the stopping point.

I wanted to show the reflection of the sky on the wet sand,

as well as the grasses on the border of the beach.

And I wanted to achieve some abstraction

while developing a softer beach scene.

Lastly, I worked for color harmony.
