This painting is gorgeous and delicate. The luscious palette is one of muted lilac, periwinkle and coral pinks with soft lavender-hued earthtones and hints of turquoise throughout. It captures a brilliant sunrise that blossomed over the Point of the Arches on August 17th, as the morning fog still hung over the ocean and the seastacks. When I saw these colors appear I ran down the beach to capture them. I’m glad I did as within fifteen minutes, or so, a marine layer descended transforming the scene to shades of grey.
