Kawainui Canal Morning

acrylic on gessobord

I never get tired of this view.  The Koolau mountain range never disappoints!  I've always wanted to do a painting of this and the last time I was visiting my mom I was blessed with a perfect morning to capture a photo of this scene.

This is actually the second painting I did of this.  The first one became way too busy and overworked!  Sometimes, if I'm not concentrating, I end up putting way too many details in the painting.  In a way, it's like I get lazy.  I tried very hard to limit my strokes and also take the time to step back and observe.  I'm much happier with this end result!
