Hazy Days on the Cape

TM9453 Hazy Days on the Cape 7×7 oil on paper

Simplicity – the horizon, and under that soft blue line a patch of warm sand and a granite outcrop. We can always pretend to be there. Enjoy.

Technical painting notes: I used hot press watercolor paper coated with an isolating layer of shellac for this small painting. Less brush and more palette knife gave heft and substance to the outcrop. Adding Liquin Impasto medium to the paint also added an illusion of weight to the paint  while maintaining the translucency of reflective light.
