Sunrise on the Beach

Updated: Mar 18, 2023

Anne sent me a photograph of sunrise on the beach from her recent vacation. It is below. It held wonderful memories from the past. I wanted to try to capture some of the feelings. Below are two layers of the painting. The first attempt on the left was very cold and rough. Painting water is a challenge. The second layer of paint on the right was closer to what I wanted. The colors are still cool, yet I am enjoying them. At the bottom is the photograph. The second painting has a heavy close, emotional feeling while the photograph has a light and warm feeling. I like both.

Which is your favorite? Why?

Second attempt.

Photograph by Anne Conkin.
