Del Norte Coast by Ron Marlett.

Del Norte Coast 16" x 12" May 30, 2009
   On the way home from a 2004 family reunion in Portland, Oregon,  Ron Marlett's cousin Linda stopped along several vistas in northern California so Marlett could take photographs. Del Norte Coast was one of several paintings created from this trip. Marlett's interest in creating strong diagonal movements in his compositions are evident in this piece. The foreground is divided into three diagonal strips of color and value. The diagonal movement continues in the background with the waves and cliff. Marlett's desire to paint seascapes stems from his years spent surfing and a fascination with the boundary between land and sea. You can buy a poster of this painting at Ron Marlett's Store
