"Wind And Sea (Gualala)"

This was the first of five seascapes I painted on the trip to Gualala/Sea Ranch. This painting was just sold to a collector from Santa Cruz County by Many Hands Gallery in Capitola. This is a 9"x12" oil painting on mahogany luan panel. I used a varnish wash as the undercoat. Thicker layers were applied with the following palette of colors: phthalo green, cobalt blue, ultramarine blue, carbazole violet, transparent red oxide, fire red, cadmium orange, cadmium yellow orange, yellow ochre, cadmium green, and titanium white. This painting was done at Shell Beach in Sea Ranch overlooking the bluffs and sea.

This painting makes me want to take a walk down the steep cliffs to the sandy beach below and bask in the cool clear water, all the while gathering sea shells and beach treasures for the journey home.
