When you go away for an extended period of time, how do you feel about returning home ?
We drove out to California to enjoy a holiday on the central coast for the month of February. The eight day drive there and back was phenomenal. The weather could not have been more spectacular.
I took so many pictures to either use as a painting reference or to create exciting digital work.
I was fascinated by the beautiful sunsets along the coastline. The first two images are taken right where we were living. No photo enhancements were applied. Take a look.
The love of vivid colour and the dynamic silhouetted tree, inspired me to create Sunset Silhouette. The saturated dynamic colours behind the silhouetted palm tree bring a sense of excitement and warmth to the scene.
Since it is snowing right now outside my window, this digital painting brings back the warmth of the air and the smell of the ocean in the evening. Oh to return. Next year perhaps.
