Description for "Sea Breeze"
In this cherry blossom painting, I painted my interpretation of a cherry blossom tree on the sea during a breezy sunny day. The canvas is divided into the blue sea and sand below. It is speckled with sandy brown colors with the sponge to represent sand flying everywhere on the beach on a breezy day. I painted the center of the cherry blossom flowers light yellow and the stamens of the cherry blossom cadmium red medium. The cadmium red really gives a pop of color to this sea inspired painting.
Inspiration for "Sea Breeze"
The inspiration for this "Sea Breeze" cherry blossom painting comes from the beautiful beaches in Puerto Rico and Southern CA that I have visited in the past. 1. Flamenco Beach, Island of Culebra, Puerto Rico 2. Manhattan Beach, CA 3. Abalone Cove, Rancho Palos Verdes CA 4. Pointe Dume, Malibu CA.
The Flamenco Beach on Culebra Island is my favorite most pristine beach with few visitors. It has the bluest crystalline waters and whitest sand I have ever seen. When you walk in the water, you can see everything below you including tiny fishes. Flamenco Beach is Culebra's best beach, the finest in Puerto Rico. It is the only public beach on the island where you can camp also. It is approximately 17 miles east of Puerto Rico. You can take a ferry there from Fajardo. A nice hotel to stay at that is right on the beachfront is Flamenco Villas. But you have to make a reservation months ahead of time because they are very picky who they allow to stay there.
