Hanauma Bay Watercolor Painting

This is a delightful sight for those of us still looking out the window at snow!
My oldest son recently traveled to Hawaii and when I saw his pictures of this bay, I knew I'd have to paint it.
Hanauma Bay has been a conservation area since 1967. The bay is formed from an ancient volcano that collapsed, and is home to a large coral reef and a rich diversity of marine life making it one of the best protected areas for snorkling or scuba diving.
Here, I've painted the cove at a quiet time, a perfect time to contemplate the beauty of this scene, imagine the sound of palm leaves rustling in the breeze, and the quiet lapping of the waves against the shore.
