Description of Lovely Place
This was inspired by an old picture I found of Cancun Mexico taken on my parents honeymoon 26 years ago. After salvaging the photo thanks to photoshop and rejuvenated the colors to their original state I started the painting. I tried to capture the picturesque scene and also the strong mood that the picture evoked. Through the use of color, texture, and brushwork the end result was a strong composition that evoked the dramatic mood I was aiming for. Title is based on the song lyrics from “Hotel California” by the Eagles. For some reason the picture reminded me strongly of that song.
