Sunset Beach

When we went to Long Beach,LI
last year, I took the reference
picture of the Ocean which took
my breath away. I've never seen
the colors again like I did that day.
Actually, the sun was just beginning
to set..These birds came just in time
for their picture to be taken..probably
looking for food that people left behind.

  6. J'ai eu du mal à détacher mon regard de votre peinture... Je me sens bien en l'admirant... Je crois entendre le remous des vagues et les cris des oiseaux...
    Des couleurs sublimes...
    Gros bisous

  19. I love the bold colors in your painting. There is always something neat to me about walking along a deserted beach with just the birds for company. I can almost hear the crash of the waves and the haunting cries of the gulls.

    ReplyDelete
  20. thank you DOUG for stopping by. Its almost spiritual looking out just seeing a boat in the distance and when the seagulls came it was so perfect. There's nothing better than walking along the beach, especially during a beautiful sunset!! Enjoy your day!!

  26. Amazing color! I know many people love plein air, but you cannot capture the color and action without a camera. I think if the masters were alive today, they would use everything available to make good art. This is a beautiful example.

    Looks like we were both painting gulls!

  47. Good Morning Hilda!... You have indeed caught the feeling that captivated you on that special visit to Long Beach... which only serves to prove... that seeing "the Good" in anything provides feelings that continue to travel with you!

    The gulls really do tie together the composition in the foreground... and capture the soaring freedom they always seem to enjoy!

    Good Pastelling... and Happy Spring Hilda!
    Warmest regards,
    Bruce
