Sugar Beach, Kihei Maui – COMPLETED
Sugar Beach, Kihei Maui – It’s hard to go wrong when you do a sunset painting, especially when the location is the Hawaiian islands. Sunsets are becoming a favorite subject of mine to paint because of the larger than life impact they produce (as evidenced when viewed in person!). I wanted to paint this specific location because I love the name…’Sugar Beach’ just sounds inviting to me, a sweet spot to visit indeed!
I’m pleased to announce that my “Ice Blue” 12×16 oil on canvas painting has found a new home!! Limited edition giclee prints on canvas are available for purchase at: http://www.stevekohr.com/product/ice-blue/

Untitled – WORK IN PROGRESS III
I realized that the foreground rocks and water were too similar in value to the rest of the painting, so I darkened the entire foreground by adding varying degrees of blues and reds. My next post will show progress made on the crashing wave…

Untitled – WORK IN PROGRESS II
Hi folks – this may not look too different from my February 3rd post, but I made some subtle changes. My original idea was to have the sun coming in from the right-hand side; however, it was apparent from the rock in the mid-ground that ‘light’ was hitting it from the left side. I actually liked the way that looked, so I’ve lightened the sky on the left, and have begun to darken and cool down the right side. I also cooled down the right sides of the rocks in mid-ground, and darkened the rocks in the foreground with a bit of ultramarine blue….
Rock Solid – WORK IN PROGRESS V
As I was evaluating this painting, I began to realize that it was way too warm – it wasn’t conveying a sense of late afternoon/early evening. The sun is beginning to get low on the horizon, so to express that better I have grayed/cooled down the headland in the distance, as well as the sky (especially on the left-hand side). Will still experiment a bit more with that, in addition to getting the foam bursts and spray defined a bit more in places….
