A Tulip Harvester

A Painting at sunset in the Snohomish Valley

This picture is in very flat light and the sail warmed the reflection in the water.

The painting here was a quick sketch done in a remote harbor in the Gulf Islands of Canada. I tried to make quick notes about the light which at sunset is very dramatic from a value perspective.

Some new pictures. Trying to get a structure to some of the brushwork. This picture is getting there but even a more simple approach. The following are the same with the exception of the vineyard which was more about composition challenges.
