View from the Seaview Lawn
Another painting from my 30 day challenge. I made sure to get out late in the day for the golden hour. I’d painted the Red Road many times but never this view. I drove my car down on the lawn and pulled up to where I found this great view of the road and distant coastline. The sky was already striated by cloud, shadows and sunlight. The landscape was enriched in color as the sun got lower to the horizon. Facing west, I watched the greens deepen and shadows grow as I painted this classic view from the Seaview Estates lawn. Typically a gathering place late in the day, neighbors often gather to watch the sunset and rich colors.
