My favorite time of day is just before sunset. The light is warm and soft and everything seems to glow. "Lahaina Harbor Sunset" has that warm glow. Sometimes I wish the light of day could be this warm all day long. My painting shows the resting fishing boats tied up for the night. The little blue fishing huts are all cleaned up and all the hard working seaman have gone home for the night.
I started this painting with a red under-painting to help keep the color temperature balanced throughout the painting. You will notice how the red is carried all the way through starting with the sky.
"Lahaina Harbor Sunset" painting is the winner of the "Lahaina Arts Society" award and the "Honorable Mention" award in the 2017 Lahaina Poster Contest. I am so thrilled and feel so honored to have achieved these awards.
