Gillingham Islands-Saxe Point

 
The Gillingham Islands are
 a small group of rock islets
that lie off the southeast side of 
Saxe Point and
are a main feature in the views from this
park in lovely Esquimalt.
They are a popular diving and
 fishing location here,
and by the amount of interest 
shown to them by our group of outsiders 
Friday morning they are very popular
among plein air painters as well.
Another attempt for me to try and capture 
the subtle light and colour
 present on a cloudy morning
on the shore of Juan de Fuca Strait.
Oil on wood panel 
9 x 12.
Comments welcomed and encouraged!

Thanks Ron...I'm starting to approach these types a little differently than in the past and I have been using a different colour ground!

I love the subtlety in this one. It immediately caught my eye as it so wonderfully captures a particular light quality.
