This work is the third in my recent Block Island series. It depicts the beach near Old Harbor. I used a photo and my memory as source materials, but I severely simplified the composition elements to focus on two structures, rather than the many that stand along the shore. As I have done in the entire series, I used a yellow sky as the backdrop to add atmosphere.
