A Beach View: Oil on Panel

This painting began as a simple wetland landscape, but I decided to turn it into a beach. The water was painted without any reference so I had to really get into the mindset of how water moves. It was particularly challenging to make the water appear as if moving forward. I used many shades of blue, green, and pink for the waves.  I found that using more than one color, even within the shadows of the trees, creates a more dynamic painting.
