When I see a view I love, such as this one, of course my first thought is, "How will I paint this... to get the feeling I have when I see something so incredible?"   I always start with color.  The color MUST be captivating, from the start to the final stroke. "Coastal Sky V" is created on cradled birch.  The sides are painted a neutral color to enhance the image.
