Cherry Beach, Toronto Outer Harbour (16″x20″) oil, by Carol Berry, copyright 2008
I previously posted the smaller study I did for this painting last January. I used a photo reference that I took while sailing, so this is a different vantage point of a very popular Toronto beach and life guard house. Painted a couple of years ago, I really enjoyed allowing myself to get whimsical with the trees. My breakthrough with this painting was that I used linseed oil instead of liquin, this especially changed how I painted the clouds.
We are enjoying a record-breaking temperatures this long weekend, it was actually 25 Celsius, about 15 degrees higher than our average April temperature. My daughter and I painted en plein air on this same beach yesterday. Lately I have been laying out my palette differently, compared to when I painted this painting. I am already seeing more of a variety of colours in my new paintings compared with older paintings like this one.
