"Beach Bones" plein air landscape painting by Robin Weiss

"Beach Bones"  9x12 oil on canvas    $700

 Second one I did at Fort Worden on the Olympic Peninsula.  If you look through my blog posts you will see many paintings from this location. I love it because you can set up in one spot and do two totally different paintings.

For this painting I started out by toning the canvas and then doing a rough sketch of the driftwood leading you into the scene. Something I do a lot around here! There is so much driftwood!..As I progressed into color I started working out the simplification of the sticks and stones.  As often happens with a scene this complicated I got it wrong on site and touched it up in the studio.

By the way,   Happy Fourth of July!!   Let Freedom Ring!!
