Del Mar - 19th Street


Mother's Day at the beach.  The process I used for this painting was to study the waves first, make a sketch on paper and then I toned the canvas with Alizarin Crimson first before blocking in.  Studying the waves was tough work - relaxing, watching, observing, I almost broke a sweat.  Toning the canvas helped set up the morning sky and the sand and complimented the color of the waves.    This could easily become a life-long obsession, waves are like snowflakes, no two are alike.
