This is my second submission for August 2012 Virtual Paintout Tasmania challenge. It's oil on 9x12 canvas panel.
The Tasmania I saw while visiting "virtually" was mostly landscape / ocean type scenes. This scene caught my eyes because of the interesting back lighting, the far away mountain and boats versus the near ground family playing at the beach as well as the big tree that seems to pull the two separate background and foreground scenes together. (ref) The colors were less intense than my previous submission since I was mostly interested in trying to capture the sense of light.
