Sunday Morning at Hendry’s Beach

16×20″ oil on canvas– This painting began as a demo at my painting workshop a couple weekends ago.  I was showing the group how to quickly block in the essential shapes of light and dark in a composition to freeze a moment like this when the light is changing quickly.  I had a great time sharing my technique and ways of designing images with a really fun group of artists.  Drop me an email if you’d like to be on the mailing list for future workshops.
