Early Morning on the Beach Path
"Early Morning on the Beach Path", 9 x 12, oil on panel
This is a larger version of a 6 x 8 plein air oil sketch done earlier this winter. It is on the grounds of the Bonnet House facing the beach. I reworked this a few times and in doing so lost the transparency of the dark areas. I like it overall but wish I had held off on those darks in the foreground. I had to resort to opaque paint to lighten those dark shadows. Lesson learned (but I will probably do it again . . ).
