Wind Swept Bay Beach
Spring is starting to pop on the SF Bay and this painting shows the wind bent cypress trees along a beach. The intent for the composition was to create several triangles and use different values giving a depth to the scene. The water is manganese blue over raw sienna. Manganese is a very green blue. In my experience, it has the greatest variation among manufacturers.
