"Last Light, Ruakaka Beach" 11x25" Oil on Canvas by Richard Robinson

Wow what a stunning Spring evening we had yesterday. Couldn't resist going out for a paint. It was overcast when I started which meant the shadows were warmer and lighter, and I usually don't change the plan after the block in stage but when the sun finally came out it lit the scene up like a blow torch which stopped me in my tracks. Threw plenty of paint on this one, liberally using the palette knife and a 3 inch brush in a few places. Great fun!
