Seaside Umbrellas

Thomas Kinkade loved setting up his easel outdoors and capturing the play of light on water and sand. Often those Plein Air studies became the basis of his studio works, created in the style of the great Impressionists. In Seaside Umbrellas, Thom captures the beauty and simplicity of a quiet afternoon on the beach – and those lingering moments under the umbrella, listening to the ocean sounds of gulls flying and waves breaking.

  • For a period of six years, Thomas Kinkade¬†painted under the¬†brush name of Robert Girrard from 1984 to 1989: “I wanted to reinvent academic styles – implementing my own use of light. Impressionism was an avenue that beckoned that pursuit.”
