This looks like a plain and simple painting of a beach scene, but it was not so simple to paint. The scene is one of my multi layered paintings with the final layers including iridescent pearl, iridescent bronze and interference gold to create the effect of sunlight on the waves. Here I was working on making a simple scene awesome and I think I achieved a great result. One day when I have a permanent home I will paint this for my bedroom in a very large size with a great big set of brushes.

I've read many Artist's advice on how to paint water and a very well known artist whose name escapes me, wrote that wave strokes must connect to make it look realistic. Well, when I was in Paris and had a opportunity to study Monet's work close up, I realized the previously mentioned expert was obviously wrong, however, I do admit it is very difficult to pull off. The first layers of the water were painted using Claude Monet's style of rapid dashes to denote waves. The final layer of glints and glistens on the water were added using the same effect and were even more challenging to achieve while still making the scene look natural.

My signature on the left here shows up more than in the actual painting because it is created in interference gold which is only visible from certain angles.

For some reason my blog has become out of sync with the start of my Daily Paintworks auctions, so today you have the pleasure of two new works from my studio. Here is the second.
