‘Dunes in Nappeague’ by Terry Elkins
“Dunes in Nappeague” by Terry Elkins.
Plein air, oil on canvas. 30″ x 40″. Gilt frame by the artist.
Beautiful depiction of Eastern light over dunes.
From the artist, on moving to the East End thirty years ago: “I discovered the area where I had settled was a light filled landscape surrounded by ocean and bays. I began to work outside, in the tradition of Plein Air. My work began to reflect the light, landscape, the coastline, architecture and other images found in the littoral zone. Today I keep going back to the places where I’ve painted before, working there again, developing ideas and techniques that I was unable to do five or ten years ago.”
