"Gray Day" - 6 x 6 inches - oil on canvas

"Gray Day" - 6 x 6 inches - oil on canvas

I don't think I could ever get tired of painting the ocean.  I stood among these rocks and happily painted for a couple hours.  On this particular day, the sky was overcast and there was little or no wind.  All the colors were subdued, shadows were subtle and the ocean water was quite calm. I was kept company by a flock of Yellow-Rumped Warblers that stopped to graze in some bushes behind me.

This may be the first plein-air painting that I finished completely on location and didn't make any changes or corrections when I got back to my studio.  I think the overcast lighting is probably the best explanation for this.

This 6 inch square painting is available for $60.  Click the Buy Now button below or click here for other payment options.
