Avalon NJ Sunset

Avalon-sunset

What can be better than relaxing on the deck of your beach vacation rental and watching the sun set across the bay? The scene never fails to inspire, and I’ve made several watercolors on the subject. Here is one that didn’t find its way into a frame. This view was observed a few years ago from the public marina on 81st Street. Watercolors on rough paper.

 

Full Sheet

A colleague once asked me if I ever worked on a full sheet of watercolor paper. Here is one. Most of my work is done on quarter sheet or smaller, but this subject needed something big. It’s drawn from memory, and recounts  a moment spent looking up from the beach at the immense expanse of dune and sky near Truro, Cape Cod, just before sunset. Watercolors on Arches paper.
