An oil on canvas painting of New Buffalo's shoreline on a cloudy day. This view of Lake Michigan was made on a 40in x 16in x 1.5in stretched canvas, painted on all sides with a heavy-duty and sturdy frame for its base. I wanted to create a piece that was less saturated with color, while also keeping in theme with my other paintings that feature beaches, cloud forms, and lots of texture.

As someone who adores highly saturated landscape paintings, it was difficult for me to find anything with more subdued colors that wasn't dull to look at or boring to paint. Thankfully, I was able to find the perfect scene after a visit to one of my favorite Lake Michigan spots! This panoramic view is based on an overcast day at the beach, with the pier peaking out on the left, the soft forms of clouds spread across the sky, and the texture of turbulent waves building up in the foreground. This piece took a while to create due to the many layers of oil paint, but it was a lot of fun to test out techniques and to use a different color palette. I hope that you find this view as relaxing and peaceful as I do!
