Beachy Chic, Loads of Potential

Anchor Courts No. 3
8x8, oil on panel

First, let me apologize for the glare on this photo. I've tried to correct it - using both natural solutions (different location, different days) and unnatural ones (Photoshop) but there's just no hope for it.
Found this spot on an early morning ride around Port Aransas. There are 10 little, brightly-colored bungalows at the Anchor Courts - the property is for sale and we would call it...hmmm.... a fixer-upper. It could be a very retro-charming family compound. I call the pink bungalow for living and this turquoise one for my studio. This painting is going to the ARC of the Capital Area's 10th Annual Building Bridges Art Auction in October. I'm happy to be included in such a worthy cause - click here or here for more info.

I get that glare problem on my darks too. I don't know how you can fix that....in any case, this is a very appealing little painting. I love the way the blue sky gently transitions into the turquoise cottage, becoming one shape. Very cool (cool blues, get it?) Speaking of which, the warm pops of the rust and the bit of yellow beyond the fence are very effective foils for the overall cool tones.
