Pier 23

Acrylic on Canvas Panel

Back to my regular acrylics (saving the open ones for another landscape). I'd toyed with the idea of doing this for a while, but felt like I couldn't make a good composition of it. I finally decided I wouldn't worry about that so much, and instead concentrate on the contrast of the light and dark areas and trying to see how much information to include in the shadow areas.

Oooooh...really great light in this, Gringo!

I agree with Gwen - the warm light on the building contrasted with the cool shadows and the sky is very beautiful.
