A contemporary, atmospheric seascape of the day's last glow highlighting clouds and reflected in the water. The eye skims across the water, lingers at the low horizon and is lifted by the sweeping clouds. Loosely defined distant land masses are visible at the horizon line. I used a limited palette of cerulean blue and teal, cream and white.  This is a quiet painting, calming but uplifting.

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.
