30 in 30 February Challenge- Day 13

Today I prepared for this painting by doing 3 different thumbnails, each in a different format- rectangular, square and panoramic. I also did 3 notan studies and 1 color study. By considering multiple compositions, I was better able to choose the most successful design- in this case, the panoramic format. This is a view of Warwick Long Bay from the dunes. I walked over from Horseshoe Bay beach, stopping and admiring all the little hidden coves along the way. The prize at the end was this sweeping view of Warwick Long Bay
