The painting composition has been changed from the original sketch.  I wanted to include the dynamic clouds that build over St Thomas and the coral reef in the foreground.  People have asked if the water is really that color.  It is that color, depending on the time of day and the amount of sunlight flowing through the crystal clear water.  It is a beautiful thing to observe in person.

Click on the images to get a better view of the detail.

Below is a series of photos taken during the painting process.  I use 140 lb Arches watercolor paper.  I like to keep the colors clean and vibrant.  If you have any questions please contact me via email
