This new painting features a Florida Sunrise at Fort Lauderdale Beach. There is an overall warm glow to this oil painting with warm clouds and sand. I like to go to the beach in the morning to see the nice colors in the sky and water.

This original oil on gesso-board started with a dark orange under-painting that can still be seen in different areas in the finished painting. A nice overall effect can be achieved by toning the canvas or panel before painting. Different colors can be used to tone the canvas and this establishes a value instead of a bright white canvas at the start of painting.
