Water's Edge 8" x 10" oil on linen panel
This is from a photo from Kodiak, Alaska and the light was at that late day stage, but the sky was overcast. It created a pale yellow and orange light that wasn't very strong but that light and the water at the edge of the rocks is what I was concentrating on. I think perhaps the trees are too important here, though I did play down all the busy edges. I started with a violet block-in of the main shadow shapes and built into the middle and lighter values and colors as it progressed.
