Palms Up

Winter blues are taking a hold of me. I am longing for the beach. The technique in this painting is a little different from the usual layers of glazing that most of my paintings consist of. The effect of scumbling - dragging the paintbrush across the canvas so that it only deposits paint on the higher elevations of the surface - is a different approach to create some mystique to a scene.
