Gay Head, Martha's Vineyard (Smaller version)

This is a small prototype before I do a larger commissioned version. It's oil on 11x14 canvas panel.

This is a view from the Gay Head light house observation area in the town of Aquinnah on Martha's Vineyard. Our photo from this year was cloudy. So I searched on the internet for sunnier pictures. The design of this picture is a composite of elements from our own as well several other sunnier pictures, plus a bit of my own liberty. I heightened the color to get the contrast between blue and orange, light and shadows. The main colors included cobalt, cerulean, terra rosa, Indian red, sap green, coral, violet grey, ultramarine violet, Paynes grey and cadmium yellow.
