Recently I was inspired to create a painting that felt warm and bright, right now it’s very cold and there’s lots of snow on the ground, in fact we just got 10 inches of fresh snow. Although it’s quite beautiful sometimes you just long for the warmth of the summer sun.
In this oil painting I wanted to create the feel of the warm summer sun and the sensation of heat and glow.
In the distance you can see the atmosphere and it makes me feel the warmth in the air. The sun passing through the moisture in the air on a summer day creates this feel.
I wanted to break up the colors a bit and I did this by adding a more blue-green crashing wave. If Id had used an orange I feel it would have overpowered the piece.
