The original Caribbean Sunset -| Dragon Cloud Oil Painting is inspired by the most spectacular trip to the Caribbean island of Curacao. 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. I knew I had to capture and share this deep ocean view, and expansive prismatic sky. It has a way of pulling you out of the wherever you are and onto the beach, anytime you want.

Caribbean Sunset - Curacao | Original Oil on Board

The original Caribbean Sunset - Curacao Oil Painting is inspired by the most spectacular trip to the Caribbean island of Curacao. This pieces creation was actually summoned by the fact that the clouds looked like a baby dragon. And I just love how art and nature can inspire such wonderful visions. 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.

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.
