This is the 4th in my series from the Amalfi Coast in Italy. This is a beach scene in the town of Amalfi. I was intrigued by the wall to wall people and umbrellas, as well as the reflections and light from the sand that it created an abstract sort of patterning. I wanted to achieve that look in the painting. The cliffs above the beach also had the same presence to it and I used that architecture and the color of the sky and water to pull the piece together as one.
