Gouache Seascape by Trost Richards

William Trost Richards, Rocky Coastline, gouache, 1878, 29½ by 43¼

In this large gouache painting by Trost Richards, the sun is centered in the composition. 

The sunlight is echoed in the reflections, which are tucked in the small space between the rocks directly below the sky, and there are even smaller dots of light on the wet pebbles below that.

The colors and light of this painting were so amazingly done! I am just in awe of the powerful mastery Trost shows in his works.

This is really something to aspire to—I have not ever heard of Trost, so Thank you again, James
