'Evening Sky - McNeill Bay'

The waters surrounding these islands and islets have
been the scene of many marine disasters in our
maritime history here on the south Island.
Rough ground that can go from several feet to a hundred
in short order. As well tides that can reach 6-7 knots
make for tricky navigation in the best of conditions, add
in 30 or 40 knots of wind, darkness and
mariners beware.
Fortunately standing as I was on firm ground in late
afternoon sun, painting this piece was not fraught
with such concerns.
Wishing you all 'fair winds and following seas'.
Oil on wood panel 12 x 16.
Your thoughts & comments are always appreciated.
