The light was different today. Just when I thought I had the formula yesterday - ha! it has changed again.
Waves seem to take so long to paint 'cause you have to wait for them to roll in to see what the tone or colour was! Patience Patience....
The sea is always changing - always moving. Had a lovely morning photographing Moffat Beach this morning. Lots of resource material for future paintings. Was amazed at the difference the colour and tone of this sketch was to the photo. No wonder i go to the effort of painting in the outdoors!
Even overcast days can have some light! It is good to get back to painting this morning. There were lots of opportunities to not go. Clouds, tides, wind, desire for sleep! But it is always worthwhile. There was a lovely combination of purples and greens that greyed everything off. Soft. Might put some vegetation in the foreground to finish it off in the studio.
As you can see by the camera's image - much richer in real life.
