Untitled Coastal Vallemar Painting

I've been working on this 20" x 10" oil on canvas for the last week or so. I'm feeling it is almost finished. Alternately, I have been working on my gull painting I started in November. It's interesting to work on a nearly monochromatic painting along with this color rich piece. I keep gravitating to the sun filled colorful pieces rather than the more somber coastal gray day paintings.

Meanwhile, I studied the gull paintings by renowned Swedish Artist, Lars Jonsson last night in his new book that displays fabulous paintings in oils and watercolors expertly executed in beautiful simplicity in the field. It also shows drawings from his sketch books which are his field notes.
