East Beach Sunrise, Santa Barbara

"East Beach Hazy Sunrise"
5 x 7 inches
oil on panel

The haze created some nice shimmer this morning on the water. Its really hard to figure out what hue the receding coast line is. One of the fundamentals in painting is that there is more blue as the landscape goes into the distance. There are times when that is clearly not the case and you have to ignore the fundamentals and trust your eyes and instinct.
