" Lighting The Way "

There's a change in the air that will start to empty the beaches.
Fall is on its way and here is my attempt to show it.I see this scene as the sun struggles to send us the last of the summers rays. As you know I love the beach and the sunset hope you do as well. :o)

 It truly is a shame this photo is so yellow the original painting isn't. I need some tip's on capturing the real copy of my images. Reg lights in a home are to yellow, I'm thinking to take the picture in the natural day light. maybe that will help capture the real colors. This is what the picture really looks like big difference.

" Hidden Sunset "

Composition, color, design or just plain luck. I love to paint you just never know how a painting is going to turn out until its done. We have  the basics and all the skill and it still may not work. I feel like you are very lucky as a artist with a God given gift when they do. You be the judge. Thanks.

" Eastward Shore "

To be more exact Jersey Shore. Painted from a picture sent to my by my sister. She said this is a Doug picture so here it is. Layers of color to real yet true to design. This is the type challenge I love to paint. What you think?

"Looking Westward "

Looking westward and seeing another gift of a beautiful sunset.
Mauve and beige what a subtle yet powerful combo. This view with just a break of light throughout. The open range and all the possibilities beyond the imagination. I'm sure by now you can guess that I'm on a conquest to capture the sun and its effects. My thought today was,  you can take what some might think to be a bad view of the landscape and add the magic of a beautiful sky . It speaks for itself.  Thanks for you kindness , Doug C.
