Hey there! This painting is 29" H x 48" W; the largest I've attempted so far.
It's based on a photo I took on June 21 last year when the beach was transformed for just a few minutes by the most incredible warm pink sunset lighting (although I've purposely exaggerated the values and color to emphasize that effect).
I've been working on the canvas for about three weeks and I can no longer see it objectively. So, I'd like your professional opinion. . . I'm wondering whether I should let it dry, and later, adjust the clouds and beach sand by scumbling in a new lighter layer of white and light yellow? Or, should I just stop now and maintain the dramatic dark clouds and their cast shadows?
I look forward to your suggestions!
