Cloud Shadows, Acadia NP
A few years ago, my wife and I were able to enjoy some time exploring Acadia National Park in the USA. What a wonderful place for an artist to explore. My time there was far too short. I have created a number of paintings from my reference materials I gathered while there and hope to find time to do more or even go back for an extended visit. This painting is all about the edges of the sea meeting the very aged sandstone shoreline. I left the center of focus less obvious in order to force the viewer to scan the entire painting. Directional clues of colors, texture and values help lead your eye around the painting.
