Sunrise on Marina Beach, Chennai India

Oil on stretched canvas - 24x30" (approx. 61 x 76 cm)

This is the final version of the painting done from Vivek Reddy Pottu's photograph. Considerng the number of people that live in India, I would guess that it's very rare to find a stretch of beach that has this few people on it at one time.
I took some freedoms with the sky, particularly the clouds down on the horizon to make it a little more interesting.  I'm really liking the movement in the water. And for me this beach just cried out to have something scratched in the sand, so I broke my tradition of always signing in the lower right and "carved it into the sand" at left.
