Beach Blue Light
Beach Blue Light: Using artistic license, I lightened the night sky of a beach scene in order to portray my vision of the beach at twilight. Tinted with a shade of pastel blue, the painting depicts the moon casting blurred rays of light across the beach amidst a dusty blue sky. In contrast, the individual foam-lined waves the roll along the sand are carefully detailed and have lustrous color. Shining against the glossy waves, the moon rays also illuminate the soft, light brown mounds of sand dunes that become smooth as the sand meets the sea. The soft tint of blue at dusk goes lengths in portraying the tranquility of a solitary evening at the beach.
