12 x 12 x 1.5 Oil on Canvas

This is another scene of Seven Mile Beach at Grand Cayman. When you see a location like this in person, it is hard to capture its awesome beauty in pictures or paintings. But the challenge exists and the only option is to keep trying :) .
I had a second 12x12 cradled cotton canvas on hand and chose a gray base coat, which has worked well for these types of seascapes in the past. However, if I paint another, I will use a bright pink or red foundation. In my experience, the first layer greatly affects the outcome, especially when you have areas of it showing through.
I was hoping for something a little brighter and bolder. That said, you quickly learn it’s better just to finish the piece at hand and think about what to do differently the next time around.
And the best thing about painting without boundaries is you are free to recreate any image… as many times as you’d like!
