On the Beach (South Carolina), oil on canvas board, 12 x 16"
A small tonal piece here. I composed the scene (Myrtle Beach State Park) to create a large expanse in a small picture plane. My two daughters are on the waters edge to give scale to the tonal banding created by the dry sand, wet sand, white waves, and ocean water, sky, and clouds. (Somewhat inspired by Edward Potthast.)
