Warren Dunes State Park

8"x10" acrylic on Canvas Board

Had a great time camping at Warren Dunes for a few days this week. I did this plein air painting on the beach. I thought it turned out well. There were a ton of people coming and going but I decided to leave them out of this one. Seagulls were flying around and they happened to land on the driftwood log in front of me. I tried to capture this in the painting. I loved the way the trees faded to a faint blue and blended into the water in the background. The trees and greenery had so much texture and variety of shape. I had fun painting this and I have really enjoyed  painting on site. It is very challenging but also very rewarding.
