Hood Canal Plein Air


This painting came from the weekend I spent with my critique group on Hood Canal. The day had an ethereal atmosphere. It's interesting how much more appealing the plein air studies can be in comparison to a well planned out studio landscape. They both have their merits but I often prefer the quick on site study. I'm anxious for the weather to warm up a bit so I can do more plein air and photography around my home in Western Washington.
