"Lawaii Beach" Oil on Board by Richard Robinson

A great day today painting at this wonderful spot in Hawaii with Eileen and Karen. This scene is another good example of having great elements in a landscape which need to be tweaked to bring out their best. In this case I moved a cliff, the sun and added a lot of sea-spray and atmosphere.

What a wonderful painting!!!  You use your grey so well and your high lights... I can't describe the feelings they have giving me.  They are not just added beauty, activity and character in the painting. The orange red on the closer rock just hit me hard.  Yes, I WISH I could see what you see.

What a gift! I'm stuck at the slavish to the scene before me phase...you have a wonderful vision and ability to translate that with the most amazing colors. You get the 'message' across very elegantly..who imagined one could improve upon Mother Nature?!!!! Best of luck on your travels!

Richard, you take a complex possibility, one that would bypass me completely...and turn it into beautiful, dramatic simplicity! Observing through your eyes sure helps one hop out-of-the-box and see that everything has potential. Thank you!

Beautiful. I think one of the biggest lessons we can all learn is that it's okay to manipulate what we see in front of our eyes. So often we slavishly try to imitate, rather than create, the scene we've chosen to paint. In doing that, we lose track of our authority and our gifting as artists, as creators.

I absolutely love the water on the beach, the reflection and golden sand
