Rocky Coastline Acadia NP Maine

Acadia is a beautiful National park located in the Bar Harbor area of Maine - we spent some time there during our year of travelling the USA & Canada in our 31 foot self contained RV.  Truly majestic!!!

This painting is 16 x 20 on heavy linen acid free paper - painted with Chroma Interactive Professional acrylic paints.  This is a painterly style but certainly not as loosely done as most of my work of late. For some reason I had an urge to include more detail into this painting - I assume because my memory if it was that of very visible beauty.

I throw in the sky - a distant land mass and the ocean along with the start of the "rocky coastline".

I build on the rocks giving them dimension - a shadow side and a sun side

I continue to build the coastline rock giving them texture and making them look HARD!!

I add in some waves and ocean overflow and splashing onto the rocks
