Moonlit Shores 4" x 4" acrylic
On a bright, moonlit evening, a gull forages along the shoreline. Although I witnessed this scene during the daylight hours, a very limited palette of paynes gray, raw umber, and white was used to create the dramatic moonlight effect. It is an incredible experience to watch the ocean with a bright moon because it creates a unique glow and that is what I wanted to capture in this painting.
