Beach at Compo Sunset, 1970, an original watercolor painting by Hardie Gramatky. This painting is available as a fine art giclée print on premium watercolor paper.
"This small watercolor was a miniature done for a later painting. 'Rocks at Compo'. It shows sunset at Compo Beach with families fishing out on the rocks and Owenoke Park in the background. This painting is owned by our son who followed in his grandfather's footsteps as an art major at Bates College and combines his dad's computer ability and his grandpa's art in his website design company, Tenrec. He was intrigued by watching his grandpa paint in the Westport studio."
