Day #6 Secret Cove, 5x7, oil

This is my reference photo and initial sketch.  My goal is to simplify the foreground and make the scene more inviting.  Who wants to climb over all these rocks carrying your camera and lunch and maybe a child or two?  I'm not painting this to replicate the scene, that's not my job as an artist.

I have finished the sky and now I am massing in the land, remembering to make the colors darker and warmer as they come forward.

I have finished the distant island and massed in the water.

Now, wouldn't you rather walk on this beach?
