Harbor View


The painting above was the last one painted while in Fort Bragg.  I stood in the shelter of the bridge pilings and shifted my focus to this cluster of trees leaning into the harbor.  The sun was moving in on one side and the the fog and the wind on the other side.  It was getting cold as I packed my gear to head back to Sutter Creek.  The group of painters all said good-bye and off we went.  The time together went by quickly and we all shared some a good times together.  I look forward to meeting up again for another paint out in the future.  Loved being on the California coast that made for, "A Painting Day".

Nice use of grays. I like the subtle changes in color and the swirling water just at the base of the trees.
