Road Trip on the West Coast

Today I travelled south on the Oregon coast. Cannon Beach presented lots of surf and sand. For the split complementary colour scheme I added Naples yellow to the palette. In order to speed the painting of this small I used a previously colored ground (grey applied transparently). There are a number of colour temperature passages employed in this painting. The paint is applied with bristle brushes and a palette knife. Most of the paint is applied opaquely. Some passages are translucent and a few are transparent. After the Canadian Rockies the beach is a complete mental shift.

Next the road trip heads back east towards Jackson Hole and Yellowstone. No doubt these will present challenges in geography and colour.
