Fish Hatchery Forest

The woods at the edge of the fish hatchery lake sparkled with light that filtered through the leaves and reflected off the lake.   This was started plein air last summer and just finished for the May, 2017,  Miniature and Small Image Show at the Art by the Sea Gallery in Bandon, Oregon.

This is the third painting done from the Sweet Creek Waterfalls hike.  Here the filtered light seems to splash down the waterfall and spread out over the rock shelves, and into shallow and deep pools.

Lavender and Gold Sea

Bandon sunsets offer an unending variety of colors, shapes and textures.  The lavender and gold sunset filtered through the clouds, ocean spray and rocks to crystallize on the waves and wet sand.  This watercolor on Yupo painting was started as a demonstration painting at Second Street Gallery’s “Meet and Greet the Artist” a few weeks ago.

 

Blacklock Path

The boggy areas in the path to Blacklock Point caught the reflections of the morning light and coastal mist as they filtered through the forest.  Blacklock Point had impressive ocean views when we finally reached it, but my best photo reference pictures were taken along the path recording the dramatically contrasting colors, values and textures.
