Atmospheric and dreamy impressionist seascape with a warm palette and inspirational light.  The incoming tide leaves a glassy patch of shallow water that reflects the the greenish blues of the sky. A yellow sand beach curves lyrically across the foreground.  White mist rises in front of the distance mountains which create interesting dark reflections at the water's edge.  At the horizon, the sea churns with white foam. Above all this, ethereal clouds swept through a warm blue sky.

Getting to Know Mandy

Mandy Main is an art historian and landscape painter based in the Southern California desert. She has long been passionate about 19th Century American landscape paintings, which has been influential in her artistic practice. Mandy works in series, generally three paintings at a time. Her process begins with a vision of a place she has been, but she takes creative liberties with the aesthetic details. The artist is captivated by light and shadow, and strives to instill her work with moody drama through the representation of these elements. Using layers of paint and glazes, Mandy achieves mesmerizing atmospheric depth, encouraging the viewer to gaze and be still.
