"It is a magical moment to stand on the shore of the Pacific Ocean and see the sky and sea light up with color ‘as the sun goes down’."
Artist comment: "It seems as though the last bit of clouds is melting away and the sun pops out to reveal a wonderful display of color. I wanted to render an oil painting with the vivid color of opposites as seen in nature. Here I took the opportunity to pit orange against purple as the primary scheme. I painted the sky first, bringing the color down into the small pools of open water. Then with purple, I worked in the rest of the sea and foam. I then painted the deep green pools, the lighter color of the translucency, and the highlights on the wave and splash. With a palette knife, I did the rocks. When the rocks were dry, I put the run-off on and completed any little squiggles of floating foam. The pure white of the sun and white ‘spritzes’ of spray were last -- the ‘icing on the cake!’."
