Keanae Outrigger

11x15 Acrylic Painting

   When your painting massive foliage, simplify.  As an example, when drawing a palm frond, four or five strokes, 1 in 10, will represent the direction of forty or fifty palm leaves. With these strokes in place painting in the palm leaves is only a matter of dusting off the drawing chalk and filling in the spaces. I paint the background sky in first, of course. This painting also shows how reflections of a vertical come toward you, they're not a continuing vertical.

This painting was done in Lower Keanae, you have to take a cutoff from the Hana Highway to get to this peninsula. The people are very friendly down here.
