The Other Side of the Dune [study], ©2014 Maggie Capettini, 5×7 oil on gessoed hardboard
This little 5×7 was my warm-up for a morning of painting at Oval Beach in Saugatuck, MI. I found myself without any paintbrushes, so this is done all with painting knives. I really liked all the different greens and the hazy mist of sunrise from the top of the dune. This one may become a larger painting at some point, but for now its a nice little memento of a beautiful morning.
