30" x 40" oils
This painting is massive, and there is so, so much paint on the surface. I kept having to get more and more paint out as I mixed and applied; it was unreal.
I played volleyball this morning, came home and did some organizing for a family reunion, but the whole time I had this nagging in me to start this painting. It is so large that it was intimidating to begin, but once I got out the paints, I was home and doing my favorite thing.
It is a scene from the Dominican Republic, which I visited a year ago. I got up early before the sun came up and took many pictures, ironically only a few of the water. There are some really good things happening with the reflective, steely blues. The sand needs some love though - I'll fix it next time.
No title ideas are coming to my mind. None. Something will come. I'm open for suggestions, but I like short, non-cheesy titles.
Enjoy the reel below, showing you the guts of what I did today.
