Outrigger at Waikiki Beach at Sunrise
Photo by Carol Reynolds
This reference photograph that I took at sunrise on Waikiki Beach is one of 4 paintings I am working on at the present time. In the actual painting of this outrigger, the sky was more subdued but as usual I got color happy and intensified the sunrise colors in the clouds, etc. I may tone the sky down again for a softer look.
Below is a very informative video about the Old Hudson River School Artists, including Thomas Cole and Asher B. Durand; there are interesting facts presented on textural scale and atmospheric perspective. Enjoy!
