Siesta Key Beach Path
11x14 oil on gessobord
Well it's definitely summer around here! (Even under my trusty easel umbrella I think I sweated off at least 5 lbs this morning!) But it was worth it for the chance to capture the gorgeous blue sky and billowing clouds over Siesta Key Beach in Sarasota with a few of my fellow the Light Chasers (most of whom were smarter than I and stayed in the shade of a nearby tree!)
After using essentially the same limited pallet of colors for the past 3 years I've decided it's time to branch out a bit and experiment with some new ones. Inspired by the work of Kim Casebeer and her book Ideas For the Landscape Painter, I'm having fun with a few new hues!
