Path to the Seaside

Path to the Seaside
11"x14" oil on board

I've painted this same path before in the springtime, but found it had a very different feel this particular morning, late in the summer. The first one was painted on  a hazy, cloudy day,  whereas the light this morning was creating rich, sumptuous hues!  I like how compositionally it leads the eye in and on back while creating those wonderful shadows along the way.  The challenge, I find, is in depicting an impression of the sea oats and grasses without painting every single individual reed!
