Cliffs and bay disappearing off into the distance.
This painting started out as another of my low tide Northwest beach scenes. But then I decided
to paint palm trees instead of Douglas Fir and suddenly it wasn’t the Northwest anymore.
The technique for this painting is a pour of the paint from the top down along with some purposeful sprays of water creating a wonderful background. This is an excellent example of “aerial perspective.” The distance is painted with less detail and lighter colors and the detail and color intensity are increased as you move to the front of the painting creating perspective without buildings or telephone poles going off in the distance.
