San Blas Ripples: Final

SOLD. San Blas Ripples

Now that I have finished San Blas Ripples, you can compare the undercoats (last post) to the final – quite a difference! This was a really difficult piece – I had the sky dark, light, blue, greenish-yellow, and finally, dawn yellow.

The ripples are more pink in the tweaked image in the last post, but in reality, they looked more like the painting because the beach sand was a dark, almost brown yellow rather than the white sand we have here in Hawaii, and both the sand and the outer rocks reflected the pinkish light of the dawn as the water and tops of the ripples reflected the yellows.

The other part that was hard was representing the little ripple of water that surges over the shallows – not making it look like surf. The surf is to the top of the piece. coming from the end of the rocks in the jetty. The little bubbly surges are in reality no more than 2″ deep!

Here’s the final:
