Sunset in Ophikao


watercolor, 9″x12″

I wish sunsets would last all day. Colors become super saturated as the sun drops closer to the horizon. This bend in the red road in Opihikao is situated right near the black lava tide pools. There are so many gorgeous vistas along the coastline and at different hours of the day the views can become even more exquisite.
I loved painting this coastal landscape watercolor since i could include the lava rock coast, ocean surf, curve of the road, and the crimson from the sun as it highlighted the outer edges of the palm trees and fronds.
