Wayne Haag - Australian

Culburra Boulders
36 x 15 inches

Overcast skies are popular with seascape artists, even in sunny Australia. A dark stormy sky not only provides mood and drama, but brings out the white spray and rocks through tonal contrast. It permits a more limited and unified palette. A downpour of rain in the backgroung adds a vertical element to the predominantly horizontal composition. The wide format suits the horizontality of the rock platform subject.
