"Cloudy Day at Sharky's on the beach", 12x9, oil on Raymar panel

"Cloudy Day at Sharky's on the beach", 12x9, oil on Raymar panel

Another one sold recently through Collector's Gallery in downtown , Venice. Thanks, Leah!

I painted this scene of Venice Beach a while back on a cold windy day right after a storm had passed through.

As you can see from the photo above, the light temperature was very gray, with a cool light and limited value and contrast range. What was very cool about this day, however, were the whitecaps on the water, (an aftermath of Hurricane Ida), which are atypical for the Gulf Coasts' typically serene aquamarine waters.

When painting plein air, I happen to love days like this, when you don't have to chase the light every fifteen minutes, and deal with the enormous range in values that you can get in Florida on very sunny days.

If you are interested in this painting, please contact Leah Sherman at Collector's Gallery and Framery in Venice , Florida, or call her at 941-488-3029 .
