Caribbean Sunset Oil Painting | Original Impressionist Beach Landscape

$800.00

The original Caribbean Sunset – Curacao Oil Painting is inspired by the most spectacular trip to the Caribbean island of Curacao. What inspired this pieces creation was actually the fact that clouds looked like a baby dragon. I also loved the fact that the ocean sunset is always a beautiful display of oranges and blues, my favorite complimentary color combination. So I sat and captured this brief moment in time, from one of the most magical places in the Caribbean anyone could ever find. The end result, a deep ocean and expansive sky that pulls you out of the office and onto the beach, anytime you want.

We nearly popped a tire darting off the gravel road to capture this brilliant display of color and light. Sunsets have such a magical way of transporting us to amazing far away places, yet they can bring the same peace from our back yard.

The Caribbean Sunset Oil Painting was painted by artist and illustrator Andrew Gaia. In addition, he painted it in an impressionist style, utilizing the Alla Prima, Plein Air technique. Meaning, painted all at once, out on the beach, where the sunset scene now sits. Also, Andrew utilizes the wet on wet technique, balancing thick over thin layers of paint. The result is a multi-layered impressionist piece that perfectly captures the many layers of depth throughout the clouds, sky and ocean. So, the results of reflecting light and color, really help the viewer feel the warm sun and cool breeze that inspired this piece.
