Dune Studies - Painting in the Hamptons

Here are three of the dune studies I did through the week in the Hamptons. 

I picked these images to post because they show an interesting progression (and least it's interesting to me).  I found myself challenged to develop compositions from a landscape that was dominated by clumpy/spotty lumps of grasses.  These three images show how I developed a handling of this situation with greater and greater simplification along with taking bolder risks in altering the shapes to create interesting ways for the viewer's eye to move into and through the painting.

Dune Study III
Now I have to make some time to get down to Carmel and give this subject a try down there.
