I am painting more and more . . . here are two plein air oil paintings done in the summer of 2018, on Long Island Sound in Greenport. Both were done late in the afternoon, during that time of day that Leonardo da Vinci talked about as being the best time of day for light. The pink in the clouds is reflected from the nascent sunset in the opposite direction. I find it quite a challenge to paint rocks and sand, especially the small stones on this beach. But I feel quite satisfied with these two paintings.
