Low Tide Morning has such great movement, doesn’t it? Faye has nailed the color of the water. That’s one thing that will stand out to me quickly… if the color of the water is off. Water is different in color and clarity depending upon where you are. This is gorgeous! Faye said on her website that she painted this at Mariposa Beach, which is close to her house. She painted it plein air and finished it in about two hours before the tide came in and submerged her subject.
Read a bit about Faye from her website:
Painting is my passion, and I have always dreamed of pursuing a life in the arts. From a young age, my dad, also an artist, taught me the joys of painting. Since childhood I have been surrounded by amazing art and inspiring artists.
Originally from New Mexico, I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of New Mexico. I then moved to the San Francisco Bay Area to chase adventure and explore whatever creative avenues I could. From Art Gallery Management and Sales to Commercial and Fine Art commissions, I have experienced many creative and business opportunities within the art world. As a professional artist for over 15 years, it has been a great experience working with companies like Disney and Universal Studios. Working for Disney brought me to Southern California, where I now live.
I recently launched Fay Wyles Fine Art to pursue my lifelong dream. My love of surfing, experiencing the outdoors and traveling is what fuels my passion and inspiration for art. As a full time artist, I now live my dream every day.
Catch you back here tomorrow!
