"Kualoa Light" 11x14" Oil on Canvas by Richard Robinson

Loved playing with the palette knife on this one yesterday and facing the challenge of all that plain green.

"Ko'Olina Colour" 16x20" Oil on Canvas by Richard Robinson

The colour at this location was spectacular.

"Turtle Beach" 16x20" Oil on Canvas by Richard Robinson

Beautiful contrasts at this very popular spot. Yes that's a turtle, not a rock. At another spot I saw a dog barking at a big rock on the beach, which I though was weird. Then the rock turned around and hopped back in the water.

"Laniakea" 11x14" Oil on Canvas by Richard Robinson

I was enthralled with the shapes on this beach.

"Over Waimea" 12x12" Oil on Canvas by Richard Robinson

After a few hours blocking this one in I was nearly ready to bin it because it seemed so pedestrian - too much like the small study I'd done previously. In despair I took to it with the palette knife and a soft brush, added a few dark accents and points of colour and hey presto, my favorite painting! Never give up!

"Pounders III" 12x24" Oil on Canvas by Richard Robinson

Such a beautiful location, this time I couldn't resist the mountains.

"Waimea Bay" 9x12" Oil on Canvas by Richard Robinson

Ready for the big surf.
