'Morning at Island Cove'

Wonderful morning painting yesterday. The Fawn lillies were
 out along the trails along with a few Wild Onions and Camas.
 A nuthatch was busy excavating a nesting cavity
 just a few feet away from my painting spot.
Otters and seals were feeding just below me 
along with geese, swans and diving ducks. 
Just as I was getting near the finish 
the fog rolled in, 
very thickly...

What I especially like about this painting are the deep green shadows/reflections in the water, and the way the highlights sparkle against the green.

Hi Gideon, Thanks for your comment. The water in this location under certain light conditions is a fantastic deep green in many variations.
