Sunset #18 | Pier

This came from a walk my daughter and I took in Manhattan Beach at sunset. She took the photograph that I used as primary for this painting with her iphone, and I took some shots similar, that gave more detail to the sky and ocean, on a much bigger Canon 30D with 24’70mm f2.8L lens. She had an amazing eye, and that transcended the limits of the iphone camera.

The process was pastel sketch, airbrush, and then paint back and forth, dark to light, guiding the eye along the forms in the painting.
