From the Back Burner - Day 3 - 30 paintings in 30 days

Everyday at sunset, people gather near the point of Santa Rosa Island in Pensacola to watch the sunset. The sailboat resting peacefully, seemed to accent  the calm beauty of the evening.

The photo reference for this painting was another from the pile that I intended to get to "one of these days". I'm still playing around with a palette of Ultramarine blue,  Alizarine, Cadmium Yellow, Yellow Ochre , a muted dark orange and an earth brown. I also threw in Viridian Green for this one.

  1. Beautiful - this makes me want to be by the sea...

  2. Thank you Claire! I'm living surrounded by water for the first time in my life. I have the Gulf, the Bay, rivers and bayous all in my backyard!
