Bay of Fires, Tasmania

This is for Virtual Paintout, August 2012 Tasmania challenge. It's oil on 10x14 canvas panel.

I was virtually traveling on the north eastern coast line of Tasmania. The ocean was of a beautiful deep turquoise / teal color, so I thought I would do a painting trying to capture the color of the Tasmanian ocean using this scene (ref).  I took out my ocean colors such as cerulean, Old Holland Caribbean Blue, cobalt teal. I also added some hints of foot print in the sandy path to give more interest to the sand.
