Daniel Pinkham - American

Portuguese Point Sunset, 8 x 8 inches

Portuguese Point Nocturne, 8 x 8 inches
Two studies of the same subject - one at sunset and one by moonlight.

Making multiple studies of a single subject is a very instructive exercise. After the first study you are familiar enough with the general form of the scene to concentrate on other aspects of painting - such as colour and mood - in subsequent studies.
