Artist's description:

Late afternoon light across the ebbing tide creates wonderful atmospheric effects shimmering on the wet sand. There is a soft quality to the glowing misty light that produces the most interesting qualities within the sea's reflections. I simply had to stop and do some quick pencil sketches and make comprehensive colour notes to jog my memory concerning the softness of the fading sunset on the water. My aim was to capture the fading sunlight before its disappearance behind the horizon.

On returning to the studio I worked on the composition and started to produce the final artwork. It certainly lifts one's mood to see the beauty of light in nature.

Relinquishing The Day is a framed original oil painting created and painted by myself. The back of the artwork is signed and you will receive a Certificate of Authenticity.
