'Burgoyne Sky'

Once again I had the pleasure of painting in
the old hayfields of Burgoyne Bay Park on
Saltspring Island. I was able to enjoy the company 
of many variety's of birds including, this time,
Martins and Goldfinches.
The painting started out in conditions much as 
you see in this image.
However 30 minutes into it things rapidly
changed and found me running with easel, painting,
full palette and backpack for the van.
A sudden downpour tends to have that
affect on a brollyless plein airist.
This piece was completed a couple days later 
back home in the studio...
Oil on wood panel 11 x 14.
Your thoughts comments would be a pleasure.
