Path Through the Dunes

Impressionist oil painting of the dunes on Cape Cod by artist Steve Allrich

This is a quick dune study done from memory. I walked and painted the dunes on Cape Cod for years, and know them (almost) like the back of my hand. There's a cove on the other side of this little hill. The proximity of the water has a dramatic effect on the quality of the light, and also makes for sudden changes in the weather and sky. I used a heavily textured surface to add some drama. One of my favorite subjects to paint.
