Bodega Beach

Acrylic on Canvas Board - 8 x 10 inches SOLD

From a photo I took last Fall. I had painted this for an hour or so and put down my brushes and walked away. I came back after a while and realized that the beach didn't really read right. The colors were too pale on the sand making it look like water. So I mixed up some more and added that over the white. I lightened the shadows on the beach too, making them a little more blue.

Beautiful painting, very nice job on the horizon/trees in the distance.
