30 Day Painting Challenge - Day 16 - "Overlook" - 11 x 14 inches - oil on canvas -SOLD

"Overlook" - 11 x 14 inches - oil on canvas
I stood on the boardwalk leading down to the beach and painted this view on a glorious, sunny afternoon.  It was quite breezy so I had to weight down my tripod so that it wouldn't blow over.

A passerby asked me why I only included a small piece of the ocean.  My answer was that I wanted to paint the dunes and the beach grasses which were way more interesting and colorful.

Below is a selfie of a very happy artist  :)  If you look at the painting, I hadn't put the sky in yet which is why it is orange.
