Christmas Tree Beach
Oil on canvas. 12″ × 16″. May 2013
I saw Wayne Clements doing a beach scene with conifers on TV and thought I would do a quick study of it. I found some colours looking for night time beach scenes, changed the type of conifers and added stairs down to the beach. Then I considered the dynamic and wanted the scene to roll in on itself around the moon. I enjoyed painting it. It was good to get this one out because my other pieces are large projects and will take some time to complete.
