Peaceful Beach an Oil Painting by Jimmie Bartlett

Peaceful Beach oil painting is painted on a 16 by 20 inch gallery wrap canvas.  I enjoyed the freedom of colors and composition in this work.  The only requirement was to paint a beach scene with the beach as the focal point, a few birds allowed.  Sunsets were also excluded.  The main palette for the sky was cobalt blue, a bit of ultra marine, touch of purple, and white.  The sea built with cobalt blue, cerulean blue, and viridian green.  The sand was painted with earth tones, paynes gray,  and white.  I used some photos for guides, but got tangential and let it flow. Canvas and archival art paper prints are available.
