Plein Air Sketch #7 - Early Morning - 10x8, oil on canvas panel

Early Morning

This was a magical spot where the stillness created beautiful reflections in the water. I started out painting on a wooden pier but had to change positions due to light on my painting. I then moved back into the shade, but my painting fell face first off the dock, narrowl missing the water.

After climbing down and retrieving it, I moved to a third location. A short time after I began, the wind came up, a boat roared by and the scene changed completely. All part of the joys and tribulations of plein air painting!
