The Napali coast in Kauai is one of the most rugged places I have ever seen. This glowing sunset beach scene seems like it should have picturesque farm houses dotting the green meadow under the evergreens, ..but these cliffs wont let anyone in towering thousands of feet and plunging straight into the ocean, its hidden mysterious valleys and ravines are still unexplored even today, as they set nestled in its timeless moody mysterious glow.

    Wow! What an eyeball sizzling scorcher of a painting Joseph! Absolutely beautiful! I love your blue/orange ‘complementaries’ and the sense of movement you achieve so well.

  • Thanks Girl, Thats such a nice compliment coming from an artist of your caliber. You’ve got such the good eye, blue/orange(warm/cool) was the thing here – how many different places / how many different ways could I? Movement = compliments of loose vs refined brush work(counter balancing brush strokes?) Thanks, Lynda.
