plein air workshop: Delaware Bay

 11x15

My teacher and friend Marie Natale held a two-day workshop this week. The first morning started out gray and cloudy, but we went ahead and it cleared up beautifully. 
I started a second painting, planning to capture more sparkle on the water--getting the right ratio of water to pigment continues to be the major challenge--but the wind kicked up and we moved to a more sheltered location.

These are both beautiful. Quiet, calm, light and peaceful. Glad you got something so nice out of a bad start to the day :).
