Mid Day at the Marina- 18x24

Mid Day at the Marina- 18x24
email me for availability and price
Did this gallery wrapped canvas in beaufort nc. the sky really was working for me on this painting. I like the feel of the light too. seems 'honest'

also started this one today from a photo taken a few years ago in marshallberg nc, near harkers island. was clicking thru images and this one caught my fancy today so I decided to paint it.
thanks to seeing dan nelson keep a painting from a photo fun and loose, I'm doing more of the huge ones inside. plus the fact that it was near 100 degrees today! wow it was nice to be in the a/c. i'll work this one some more when the washes dry. you can see that I really like warmer underpaintings no matter what kind of light I'm going to paint over it. hard to tell but its going to be water, sky and marsh painting. funny, it looks like a field now. talk about loose!
dan got me experimenting with some transparent washes and I showed him cape cod underpainting. he said he wanted to give it a try. so i'll wash on some transparent "realistic" colors over this underpainting in the next step. the when that's dry i'll paint opaquely and try not to mess it up.
here's the reference photo I'm working from. cool cloud right?
