"Heading Off" (Sold/Private Collection)

Painted this on the Jersey shore in Stone Harbor at the end of the afternoon. I was attracted to the shadows created by large clouds moving across the beautiful blue sky. It was tricky as the light changed from cool to warm but I felt it was predominately cool shadows and warm light.

Nice arrangement of 3-part land masses w/ fencing. But yeah, the light and shadow on the sand- well done.

Hi Susan,

Nice bold brushwork, I like the simplicity!

I LOVE these shore paintings! Their abstractness and yet their reality, their perfectly placed textures, and, of course, you're at the beach! :)
