This beautiful contemporary sunset nature painting was created using layers of glazing in order to give this contemporary painting a luminous look and feel. This breathtaking sunrise painting is based on a Jekyll Island trip we took. The sunlit trees and grasses illuminate and reflect in the glistening water in this landscape painting. Jekyll Island provides a lot of inspiration for landscape and plein air paintings as much of the island is not developed. I was fascinated by the miles of beautiful beaches and marshes. We took some time to take a stroll in the village shopping area by the Jekyll Island Club in the historic district. We also visited some old ruins on the island too!
