'Juan de Fuca Light'

I was fortunate to be set up ready to go when the light
broke through the dispersing clouds. Transferring the
blinding brilliance of that fast changing light as the patterns
moved across the water I found to
be quite a challenge. However in this instance the
surface of the sea was dark with shimmering light that
allowed for an interesting contrast.
Oil on wood panel 9 x 12.

Good evening Jeffrey!... Playing tag with existing light on location is one thing Jeffrey... and you have done this most admirably and convincingly in your sketch.Great sombre moodiness!

Creating light in the studio is just as demanding... if not more challenging in my humble opinion.

In "Good Morning... Burgoyne Bay" your lighting and colour are nothing shy of... Majestic my Friend! This one is quite simply... a Masterpiece - capital "M" fully intended and well-deserved!

Good Painting... Happy Spring!
Warmest regards,

Hi Jeffrey, I understand you painted your 'light' painting on location, it has that incredible life and the way you captured the light on the water is beautiful. A simple painting yet it is really lovely. In 'Burgoyne Bay' you have created a more finished painting the stones on the shore are really beautifully painted, it is a skilled piece and I agree with Bruce it is a Masterpiece with a captial 'M'. Great works you really capture life in your work so well.

Yes, really impressive in capturing that! I do love the darkness in the water...what you said makes sense, that it allowed for a good contrast...and I believe you've just helped me with one of mine from yesterday with that! Thanks!

Wow thanks so much Caroline! I have to say that I had a great deal of difficulty getting a good photo of 'Juan de Fuca Light' and will have to try once again.
