"Point Dume Sunset"

This is a 8"x6" oil on canvas from an image I took at Point Dume. This is a lovely beach and the point is a popular rock climbing spot. I did the painting completely with a painting knife just for practice in using the tool. I do use a knife when painting for some effects, but haven't done a knife only painting since college, and it was a fun exercise. It was getting close to sunset, so the sand was dark, but I loved the light on the cliff face.

1st time on a site like this. Was invited to look by artist. Plein air style is my favorite, glad I looked. TK has obvious talent. I'll be checking back for further progress! Regards, Hans in SLO County.
