Usually I absolutely hate the landscapes/seascapes I have done in watercolor, but I decided to give this one a try in acrylic. It is the first I have done in acrylic and the first I am fairly happy with.

This is done on 9 x 12 Ampersand Artist Panel.

I really enjoyed working toward the different blues. Acrylic really gives lovely, intense colors.

I'm open to any c & c you'd care to give.

I really like this. I think it is a great place to explore more.

This reminds me of thiebaud's cake series or the color of diebenkorn
