Sunset Silhouette Carmel Beach With Dog - Oil on Panel - 8" x 10"
Silhouettes are really quite amazing, especially at the beach because the light is everywhere.
Even though the figures are blanked out, the great thing is that everything else is very vibrant....and the colors are unpredictable.....so you have to paint what you see, and not what you think should be there!
Who ever heard of a blue sky, a sandy colored beach and ultramarine water!....Not here!
The dog dutifully follows behind after running all over the beach! Tired, and looking forward to getting home, while a surfer goes out to catch one last wave.
