Painted in the studio just after a trip to the sacred place of Kalaupapa several years ago, Molokai to visit the Hansen's Disease community, now a National Park. I am revisiting the memories in order to paint another scene to represent the peace found there., hoping to put aside the turmoil of the world at least temporarily.
Limited palette:burnt sienna, chromatic black, yellow ochre and titanium white. with extensive palette knife. Note how the burnt sienna appears ray and the aromatic black appears 'blue'. Inquiries: email@example.com.
Painted "en plein air" at the Kewala Cove on the North Shore of Oahu. Cobra water-based oils with Gamblin solvent-free gel over a transparent underpainting. Just steps from our cottage on this Painting trip, I enjoyed spending time feeling the wind and smelling the aroma that are so evocative of this part of the world, my childhood home. The yearning to return is beginning to invade my psyche. I painted this the day after the "Kewala Sound of Music" and want to do a larger studio version. Gift to my North Shore traveling companion, dear, dear friend from College days.
