Ocean Scene by Florida Highwayman Sam Newton. Crashing waves under a mixed sky are the the focal points of this oil painting on Masonite board. Artist singed bottom right corner using palette knife to score name into the paint layer. Newton has depicted an energized moment of a wave about to break. The rough technique on the waves looks harsh up close, however when viewed as a whole the piece is striking. The overcast sky looks ominous to some yet Newton’s impressive use of light draws your focus into the artwork.
The Highwaymen artists specialized in painting Florida landscapes in a flamboyant style. As it was not possible for them to sell their paintings in art galleries and shows, they were selling them right from the backs of their trucks, that’s how they gained their name – Highwaymen.
