Woman in a Blue Bikini – sold

 

BBikini (3)

Oil on hardboard panel, 7″x5″

This painting expresses the essence of a beautiful day at the beach…the brilliant light, sharp shadows and dazzling colors of sea and sand. I like how the golden hue of the sand and the cool blues of the water are echoed in the girl’s hair and skin and bright turquoise bikini.

Woman in the Waves – sold

WaveWoman

Oil on gessoboard panel, 7″x5″

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 Walking at the Beach – sold

Pink Bikini

Oil on hardboard panel 7″x5″

The Blizzard of 2016 made me want to flee back to summer. So I went back to the beach in oil paint which is the only way possible at the moment. I enjoyed the challenge of painting ocean waves and splashing water and shiny wet skin. This painting provides a nice break from snow and cold…what could be better than a walk at the beach?
