Man at the Beach – sold


Oil on gessoboard panel, 7″x5″

Another beach study, this time a man walking in brilliant turquoise water. I love this one because the water looks so warm and inviting. I really got into the wet skin reflections and I was pleased that my brushstrokes stayed distinct and spontaneous.

I like the hesitant quality of this woman’s stance as she looks out at the water. The water might be a bit cold or the waves look a little rough and she’s just not ready to dive in. I also enjoyed that first day at the beach sunburn on her shoulders which pops against the cool tones of the foam and contrasts with her still-pale lower half. I’d be quite happy to be sunburned on a warm beach right now.

Woman in Bathtub – sold


Oil on hardboard panel, 7″x5″

I love painting the highlights on shiny wet skin. This is one reason why bathers and people at the beach are favorite themes of mine. I was pleased to find some colorful reflections in the highlights on this figure.
