Painted two little studies this weekend, both in my studio. The light just wasn’t quite right outside. I think I’m becoming more of a studio painter as I’m finding it tough lately to get inspired outdoors. Maybe a break is needed. Luckily, I have a pretty good collection of images to work from in my studio. This one, I’m relatively certain, was taken from our ship while on a Mediterranean cruise. I think we were off the coast of Croatia. In any case, substitute your favorite beach city and enjoy!

  1. Nice piece, Ed. Regarding lack of inspiration in plein air painting, don’t think of painting outdoors as something you have to do all the time. All of us, I think, enjoy getting back in the studio now and then.

  2. I like it…simple and very dramatic. I printed some very early sunrise photos with clouds that I snapped a while back, and have been going back and forth in my mind about whether I should do a painting from one of them. Yours here inspires me to do it. Thanks!
