"On the Beach" oils 11 x 14

The scene is between the Royal Victoria Yacht Club and Gyro Park in Victoria BC. 15 minutes walk from the Gyro car park along the beach to the shady trees facing the water. The dinghy was drawn up on the beach with the sun behind - one of my favourite lighting situations. The scene could be anywhere on a tropical isle but of course it is here in wonderful Canada. One of my fellow paint-out artists noticed the Sargent influence in my brushwork. Right on!
