The Bay is located on the north shore of Long Island in Huntington, NY. Beautiful place with many subjects to explore.
To begin with, what caught my attention on this subject. There were old chairs and decorations on the handrails. And just behind, there was glimmering like a diamond on the water. The Bay grabbed me into its pass and emerged as a dream. In a long not forgotten time. Suddenly I felt familiar and no longer felt alone. I wanted to catch this moment inside the sunlight. And I found stars in sparkling lines. It was the visual effect of recreating light within.
THE BAY TECHNIQUE
Painting water can be very tedious and thematic. Pattern, combined in layers, and the hues of the color are its knowledge base. With persistence and patience, it is approachable. It is exciting to experience the sun-changing reflections. To understand how it moves, I used zig-zag lines in repetition. Shapes in movement become uncountable. Indeed, the wind commands in which direction should go. Waves on the bottom, as they move up to the top, they diminish in size. Every color around this effect has been lower in luminosity. THE BAY/SEARCHING LIGHT
I mixed raw umber with ultramarine and viridian green. The handrail is in the center. Transparent blue enriches the whole panorama. And by mixing it with turpentine and oil. We can see layers behind the others. Then to create a spark effect I lowered back the blue tonality. It let the sunlight go through the other colors. THE BAY/SEARCHING LIGHT
Sitting out there observing this was revitalizing and energetic. And I have just preserved it in this painting for you to enjoy it. Nature and life in its splendor.
