Atmospheric paintings

I finished the painting above last week it is one of the series I have done of Llansteffan Beach. In doing an atmospheric painting the essential part is to reduce the contrast of values as the painting recedes. There  may be odd exceptions when you wish to emphasise part of the work but that is the general rule. The couple are highlighted and then to take the eye there is an escape with the castle in the distance.
