greenwood state beach 7x6 in.

I started painting this one at about 4pm when the sun was moving toward the West but not yet setting. There was a great contrast happening on the beach at this time. The orange sunlight hit the rocks and created cool blues in the shadow areas. Also, I was amazed at just how bluish-violet the wet sand appeared as the waves receded back into the ocean away from the beach.

I really enjoy your plein air work. I'm also an artist who does a lot of landscapes. With a degree in engineering, it has always been difficult for me to loosen up and be less literal. I enjoy your painterly touch.
