Back from visiting family on Pawley’s Island, with so many wonderful memories. What a beautiful peaceful place to spend time with loved ones! Pawleys Island is reminescent of a much older time.. no scraped and cleared beach with condos stacked one on top of the other. The Atlantic side had lovely twisted old oaks and lots of tall shrubbery . Our weather was spectacular. We were treated to several fabulous sunsets with lots of drama and quiet Dawns shedding light on calm surf.
I had a perfect outdoor studio over looking the marsh, just steps across the street from the Atlantic ocean. I am not a plein air painter. My work is typically much larger scale studio paintings, simply because I put so many layers on the canvas. However I did enjoy making these smaller color studies of “The Magic Hours”. Next time I am going to take my rig across the street to paint the Atlantic! Now I have to get the color study Marsh dawn framed as a gift for the gracious homeowner that shared their houses. Looking forward to a return visit.
