A Signature View

Location: Hualalai Resort

Size: 45" x 15"

Medium: Oil on stretched canvas

Artist's Comments: Hualalai Resorts' signature 18th hole offers one of the most beautiful vistas at Hualalai. Perched on a bluff above the shore, golfers are surrounded by 360 degree views from the waves rolling in from the Pacific; sandy beaches fronting Hualalai; fresh water ponds of Waiakauhi; Mauna Kea mountain and Mt. Hualalai to the signature “wedding trees” and lava shoreline behind the tee boxes. Everyone is attracted to a different segment of this view but my favorite has always been the start contrast of the bright green fairway and bright blue ocean set against the dark lava rocks. I have painted a similar scene before but, this time I wanted to create more movement and color in the ocean. I achieved this by bringing in purple shades to represent the shallow reef. Capturing the action of the waves is always difficult but, I feel I am slowly getting the hand of replicating their hues and action onto canvas. I am very pleased with every element of this painting!
