orange sky marsh study .... SOLD

Here's a little study of a sunset over the marsh.  I wanted to capture both the intensity of the fiery orange in the sky and the glowing silver-blue tidal creek.  I softened my normally bold brushstrokes here to get more of a dreamy, hazy feel.   I'd like to try this on a much larger canvas using my normal brushstrokes and still try to capture that dreamy feeling.  This little study is up for auction on Daily Paintworks if you are interested!

Go big Dottie! It's liberating. Like what you've been doing. Your roosters have a lot of personality. Like the brushwork on the jungle painting. I wish it felt like spring here. Cloudy and chilly still.

Go big absolutely! It's such a different experience Dottie. This little one turned out great too!
