Puerto Vallarta Marina

8x10 Oil on Gallery Canvas
This painting was done from a photo taken from our villa while on vacation in Nuevo Vallarta. It was a totally still, very hot day that reminded me of days when we were kids that seemed to go on forever. We heard that our -35 temps are finished for this year so maybe I'll get wistful about snow again. I would like to paint a picture of the little snow hill that my son works at before they close.

Today we did an exercise that was meant to be monochromatic. Not sure how I did with that part of it but will try it again another time.

Tracey the colors in this shell are really beautiful! I love the cast shadow too. I see from your bunny post you are as ready for spring as I am!
