Artist, Alan Zawacki, working on a plein air painting on the beach in Negril, Jamaica.
Negril Morning is a 9"x12" original plein air acrylic tropical seascape on canvas panel framed in a 3" wide rustic gold frame.
"This painting was completed on a recent warm, sunny morning on the beautiful 7-mile beach in Negril, Jamaica. You can see a video of my painting process for this painting on my website: www.alanzawacki.com or on YouTube at: <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://youtu.be/e_O46iUXwB4">http://youtu.be/e_O46iUXwB4</a></a>
I set up my travel easel on the beach about 9:00 AM and began the painting. It was a very calm, peaceful morning and the early morning temperature was about 80 degrees. I finished the painting about 11:30. The sun had shifted to almost overhead and the light and shadows had changed so it was time to stop --- but I think I successfully captured the morning stillness on Negril's 7-mile beach."
