Oregon Coast Sunset - WIP
So whenever we're on the Oregon coast I come back with a gazillion sunset pictures. My wife makes fun of the fact that I have a hundred pictures of the same sunset, and a handful of the family (slight exaggeration, I think)! So tonight I started painting one of these sunsets. The struggle is not to blend the heck out of it. In fact, as I develop this one further I'm going to try and keep or move more towards a "painterly" approach where the brush strokes are defined and add interest and motion to the painting. It's still very blended right now, but I've got lot's more to do. I like the start though! 9"x12" archival quality canvas.
