Latham Park, West Barrington- sold

Oil painting, 8" x 10"

It always amazes me how windy it can be right beside the water, when half a mile inland there's barely a breeze. I had to hold on to my pochade box, and gusts of wind would blow my hand off course when trying to paint some details.

I find clouds difficult to paint-  they continually change shape and color. Shortly before sunset the ones over land picked up a really warm yellowy-brown shadow while over water the shadow was more bluish. Maybe I'll get it the next time...
