Vibrant Jamaican Sun | Original Oil on Board
The original Jamaican Sunset Oil Painting is inspired by a rare trip to the Caribbean Island of Jamaica. I am pretty sure its clear what inspired the painting of this art. Just look at the colors in that sunset and how the clouds dance around it. It almost seems like the skies were framing the sun, just for me to paint. I really love painting brilliantly beautiful skies with a rainbow of reds, oranges and blues. And on that day, the Jamaican skies gave me just that. And to make it even better, the tropical island provided dancing greens in the foliage shadows to add even more color.
The Original Jamaican Sunset was painted in an impressionist style, utilizing the Alla Prima method. Meaning, painted all at once, out in the wilderness where the location now sits. Balancing thick over thin layers of paint to create a result that is a multi-layered piece that perfectly captures the many layers of depth throughout the foliage and radiant sun..
