The Bay location is on the north shore of Long Island in Huntington, NY.

What caught my attention from this subject? 

Was this abandoned boardwalk 

there were old chairs and decorations on the handrails 

With party decorations forgotten in the past. 

And just behind, there was sunlight glimmering like a diamond on the


The Bay Glows

Sensing a feeling of loneliness, 

the Bay grabbed me into its pass and emerged as a dream

People used to gather in the past to celebrate.

And no longer in use, it became part of life to be in harmony with nature.

Suddenly I felt familiar and no longer felt lonely


I wanted to catch this moment inside the sunlight. 

And I found stars in sparkling lines.

Those few minutes I spent observing it.

Were revitalizing and energetic to live

And I have just preserved it in this painting for you to enjoy. Nature and life as it is.

It was the visual effect of recreating light within.



Painting water can be very tedious and thematic.

With persistence and patience seeing it

It is as exciting to experience it in real life.

To paint it, I had to draw it first.

To understand how it moves, I had to use patterns.

Patterns are uncountable, and It moves where the wind commands it.

Waves forms have triangle shapes, and they all follow one direction.

All in a horizontal line.

Waves on the bottom painting as they move up to the top, they diminish in size.

The Bay Patterns

Every color around this effect has been lower in luminosity.


When I use lines in the painting technique, I use a number 3/0 brush to draw.  

 I mixed raw umber, with ultramarine, and viridian green. And I continue adding more details. 

Here the handrail in the center. Transparent blue to enrich the painting. And kept adding glazing medium, to create transparency, we can see the other layers behind. 

To recreate the glow effect on The Bay,

I lower the blues luminosity letting the sunlight outstand away up above the rest in high tonality.
