Two more painted on site.  The first one is looking more at the pools, I got the idea from looking at a Monet, the waterlilies, where he just paints the water and no sky.  It makes it more of an abstract 
painting.  I used palette knife and brush for this one. The second one is done very quickly, in one sitting of 2 hours.  It was a windy day with a cyclone hovering near the island, hence the cloudy sky and the rough waves int he distance.

Trou D'Eau Douce, Mauritius.

I've been painting these very large canvases on site in front of my beach house.  They are views I have done many many times so I know them very well.   I swim in the waters and walk on the beach every weekend, this is important, knowing your spot is very important.
