"Redway Beach" by Jim McVicker

Last weekend Terry and I went down to Redway to paint along the river with Judy Evenson and Alicia Tredway. It was a great spot and SUNNY! I painted a couple of small oil sketches in the late afternoon light. This was a group of people sunning, swimming and enjoying their time together next to the river. I was very struck by the figures and the colors of all the objects. I couldn't resist painting what I saw.
4 1/2 x 7 1/2  oil on paper


  1. I like the way you carried the red into the figures sweeping across the painitng

  2. I agree with Steve, it's a great painting and there's such a joyful party mood to it.
    Well done Maestro!
