Hot sun beats down hard burning the sand to the feet, blue sliver of shade silhouettes the glistening surf as it reaches for shore, blackened skins find temporary refuge from Natures timeless radiance. Such are the feelings of a life close to shore. 18″ × 24″ original oil on 3x prime canvas seascape by Hawaii seascape artist Joseph Ruff.

    .Super Art work.. GRAND effect on water reflection of light ..fav

  • I love the dramatic effect that silhouettes always have but I don’t ever like to paint black and flat, what the hell, I’ll do back lit silhouette with lots of color! Thanks for your nice comments
