High Tide #1 - California Coast


This was the first painting in my series of ocean scenes.  I loved the composition of the photo I took and how everything came together!  The wave at high tide, how the foam on the beach came across the sand, and the gorgeous colors only a sunrise could capture. I used this photo only as inspiration and reference. This was a painting started with brush to canvas.  No preliminary drawing needed! The original was painted in oils on a 10”x 20” canvas and is in a private collection.
