Winter Daydreams

Close ups

Oil on 5x7 hardboard.

We have received new snow every day for what seems forever with cold temps...thus my title of "Winter Daydreams" for this painting of Marloes peninsula, Pembrokeshire coastline in Wales, UK.
This time I first toned the support with Cad. Orange acrylic to try for a warmer, brighter, look. I'm fairly pleased with the result.
The reference image was supplied by Lin for the WDE at Wet Canvas.

Proverbs 4:18 The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.

  4. Thanks, Pam! I love working on a toned support for that reason! Those little bits peeking through harmonize and energize.

  9. This is so gorgeous, Dean. So beautifully executed, such a trip through my head to be standing on this grass and staring out to sea...

  12. Really like the way you did this ocean scene. I think my favorite part is the foreground. Actually went to the ocean today since it has warmed up some here.

  13. Right there in the reverie, Dean. We've had temps in the 20's, and might have more snow tonight. You folks have had it worse, I think.
    Beautiful painting. that underpainting gives it a nice glow.

  18. I think this is one of my favorite land/seacapes Deano! The wispy grasses up front and the cool waves in the background. Beautiful.

    I thought that crow #4 was pretty awesome too.
