The Swirling Sea

I mentioned in my last post that I was moving on from within the walls of Old Town Dubrovnik by mid-April since it was getting so crowded. My last month of painting in Dubrovnik was spent mostly on the island of Lokrum; just a short ferry boat ride from the mainland. The variety of scenery was stunning and one of my favorite things to paint there was the rocky beaches the day after a nighttime rain storm. The color was saturated. The sunshine was bright and clean, and yet the sea was still swirling around wildly from the earlier storm. Here are a few small gouache paintings from those sessions.
