IT’S DAYS LIKE THESE – OAKURA BEACH, NEW ZEALAND REVISED – ACRYLIC PAINTING

P1060694(1)

I have been looking at a few of the paintings lying around the studio and thought that it might pay to do a bit of reworking. One, that is on my website: grahammcquadefineart.com , is still being worked on needing yet another amendment. This one, which is  on the website and was posted on this blog (end May)  also fell under the brush again. When I looked at the original posting, the figures seemed very insignificant, so I doubled their size and also increased the strip of sea. I then warmed up the sky and lightened it a bit. I did nothing to the bottom. Overall I like the concept and that is why I havent changed the layout and colour balance, other than increasing the sizes of the players. Just putting stuff on the website gives you another view of the work, almost like looking at it from a mirror.

IT'S DAYS LIKE THESE - OAKURA BEACH, NEW ZEALAND - ACRYLIC PAINTING

Driving up to New Plymouth we stopped off at this beach. I took some photos and one reflected the blueness of the sky in the sand. I thought that it encapsulated the experience. This cherished moment symbolised by the infinite blue.
In reality, over to the right, was an industrial complex at New Plymouth, but turn your head slightly and your cup was half full.
