Marina Towers Oceanside

"Marina Towers"    SOLD
oil on panel, 2012
7" x 5" (17.78cm x 12.7cm)

I did this after a visit to Oceanside California in the late afternoon
just as the tower was beginning to drop into shadow.
I love this time of day.239


  1. This is wonderful. I like the expressive colors and shadings. I also am intrigued by the idea of the lower horizon line, looking up at the building. Very nicely done!

  2. Hi Katherine,
    Thank you, I had some fun with this one, a limited palette so the focus was more on the emerging shadow. I did 'cheat' the perspective a little bit to give it more perceived height. In reality it would not converge quite so much.
    Keep painting...

  3. Hi David!
    Love the shadows!
    The lights and darks are fantastic!
    Great time of day! Especially in Southern California!
    Nice buddy!

  4. Hi Michael,
    Thank you, I do love this time of day which is why so many of my paintings are at or near dusk. I loved the way the shadow wicked its way up from the bottom.
    Keep painting...
