Maine Shoreline...

Maine Shoreline 18x24sm



I painted this a few weeks ago near Owls Head lighthouse. It’s 16×20″ oil on canvas. When painting rocks like these I like to look for big simple passages of color, and value. Those big relationships set up the sense of light for the scene, and from there I can get in to the more subtle relationships. In the early stages a painting is broken into the biggest areas of light and dark, and as the painting develops I get to play more with the color and paint application.
