1996 Sailing out.jpg

I did not have a particularly strong purpose of what to paint on this sketching trip. I had a vague idea that I wanted to paint the ocean, so I looked up tourist information and found a hotel with an ocean view and made a reservation. My wife and I drove around the Izu peninsula, and arrived at the hotel in the evening. When we got to our room, there was an ocean front view out of our window just as I had wished for. And, the bright red sun was just about to vanish over the horizon. In addition, there was a boat cutting through the waves in the light. It was a somewhat a very familiar view. As I was feeling happy, I watched the view in front of me.
