Dramatic light on the beach dunes is what I see at certain times of the day. In this stretched canvas painting I used oil paint to convey strong light penetrating the dark clouds. There are palm trees atop the sand dune with grasses cascading down the side of the dunes. Colors of violet, blue, orange and a warm white can be seen in the sand.

Painted alla prima or in one sitting. Strong brushstrokes of color can be seen throughout this original oil painting. The wet into wet style of painting in oil paint requires confident, thick strokes of paint for clean color.
