Warm Day on Mackworth Island

Warm Day on Mackworth Island • 6×6 • oil on canvas • SOLD

Today was a beautiful & deceiving day … it was one of those days that looked so nice and warm, but it was downright chilly out with a wild wind!   I’ll take it though–I love sunny days!  I sat in my studio this afternoon & thought about those warmer days ahead & decided to paint this scene from Mackworth Island.  It kind of reminds me of the French Mediterranean coast that some of my favorite painters like Renoir & Cezanne painted.  I’m not sure if it’s the landscape or the palette that makes me think of them.  What do you think?
