At the end of January, I started on another commission for a friend who envisioned a beach scene above her mantle in the family room. After a few meetings , concept drawings, and measurements , she decided upon a family favorite destination- Eleuthra. It was a pure delight painting the beautiful pink sands, turquoise surf and fluffy white clouds when the outside thermometer was in the single digits! Here is the progression of the painting. From rough start to nearly finishing Amy’s vision , the 2′ x 3′ canvas takes shape with each additional paint layer. Each step of the way, Amy provided invaluable input from the sand color, people location, and dune grasses. After her approval, we picked out a frame to her liking. Painting is now at photographers and will be framed sometime over the next week. Stay tned for the finished result.
