These sand dunes are next to water. They could be next to the ocean or the Great Lakes. I have lived on both coasts and now live near Lake Michigan.
The sky is also an important feature in this painting. The clouds are toned with the color of the setting sun. The sky was painted with brushes and the dunes were painted with a palette knife.
After painting for years out of the family room of his home, Robert took the plunge and built an addition to his home for proper studio space. He works in two very different styles, producing both color-blocked abstracts and realist landscapes. Robert begins each painting by creating a thumbnail value sketch to establish a composition. Each piece reflects his mood, but whether energetic or placid, the colors must always be harmonious. Robert’s technique uses mostly brushes with the occasional addition of palette knives to create subtle surface texture.
