Hello, and welcome to Tonalist landscape painting with M Francis McCarthy
This small painting was inspired by a beautiful New Zealand beach. I also wanted to get across the feeling of twilight by doing a graduation in the sky from deep blue at the top to more golden tones further down towards the horizon.
The tree in this painting is called a Pohutukawa. These trees grow in abundance along the coast here on the North Island and you will often see them lining our beaches. It's taken me many years to become proficient at painting this type of tree as they are quite complex in their structure, yet very beautiful.
Another nice aspect of this painting is the texture and interlacing brushstrokes which work together to create an interesting fractured quality. I'm very happy to present this painting to you here. Price includes shipping!
Cheers, M Francis McCarthy
