Luz Mar - Original Acrylic Impressionistic Boat Painting of Lugar Amarilla Golf, Canary Islands by Pat Koscienski


Luz Mar
8" x 10"
Acrylic on Canvas
Luz Mar is a painting that I did for Bill Guffey's The Virtual Paintout Challenge for April. We were to visit the Canary Islands, use Goggle map street view, and wander around the streets until we found something we wanted to paint. ....a virtual paintout. I found this boat that was out of the water for, perhaps repairs, and a dramatic skyscape, that caught my eye rather quickly. I'm a low key painter, which one can see in this painting, but again, the camera does add more darkness. I tried to keep it looser than I have been painting for these challenges...I tend to tighten up when painting from photos.

Pat, this is just gorgeous. You've captured my favorite sky here and the rest of the colors and composition are just beautiful. Wish I had seen this spot myself!!

Pat, this is so beautiful - I love the foreboding sky and the boat, alone, in the foreground.

Thanks, Autumn and Anne, that sky is a dramatic sky. It really reminds me of how much volume a sky has.

I like the painting even better than the original! Thanks for sharing the link, Pat!

Thank you, Autumn. And, any time on the sharing of links. Hope you can use it somewhere along the line.

Pat, I love the sky in this painting. I am the same way about painting too tight when looking at pictures. I am excited that flowers are blooming now—I need to try and get out more.

Thanks, Carol. Yes, the flowers and trees are all in bloom here. And, they don't last too long. Our plein aire group doesn't do winter like Bill Duffey and Rene', but we sure are raring to go when spring arrives.LOL
