BEACH PARK, Acrylic on Panel, 16 x 16", ©️2019 Jim Musil
I don't know about you, but life's been bonkers lately. I wanted to relax and have a little more fun with this one. First, I amped up the brilliant colors to match the scale of this gorgeous sunset. Then, I used big brushstrokes and organic shapes to generate motion and energy. Finally, I chose to backlight this lovely heliotrope tree to add more drama to the scene. Stepping back, I may gone a little over the top, but it was fun, so who cares? This scene comes from one of the many lovely beach parks on the west side of the big island of Hawaii. I hope you enjoy!
