I chose this image for the many colors in the sky and ocean contrasting with the beach and rocks. The original photo had a range of pastel colors which was quite beautiful. My painting has vivid colors in sky, ocean, rock and sand. I created depth with layers using underpainting to give the base value, and layers of glaze developed the complexity and illusion of depth. The rock shape actually reminds me of a sleeping dragon.
