'First Light-Oak Bay',

(Canadian west coast Impressionism, Oak Bay, southern Vancouver Island, oil painting)

This is my second go at this painting. It was
developed from a smaller plein air piece last
spring. However I was never quite happy with
how it turned out. Well today I put it up on my easel
and tried to figure out what it needed and
I think I may have done it this time.
Course who knows what I may think in
couple of days or weeks or...hmmm!
Oil on linen 18 x 14.

The first thing that caught my eye in this one was the dramatically big expanse of sky, and how relatively low the horizon line felt. I love having a horizon line really high or low, and find that it can be quite a challenge.
And love those clouds, too...the way the warms/cools work together.

Thanks Karen...I too struggle often with horizon lines. The darn things seem to move on me while I'm painting! =;-/
