Cowslips, San Juan

Cow Slips, San Juan
40 x 40, oil on canvas,  I am rather pleased with this painting.  It is kind of stylized, and painterly at the same time.  I have not really painted rock/bluffs before, so getting the colour right was a challenge.  Its really the same mix more or less i use for sand, grey, portrait pink, teeny bit of umber, and yellow.   I have a fond memory of a day spent in this place a few years ago, on San Juan Island, the light was so beautiful and hazy.  I remember it from 3 years ago. ( too bad my memory doesnt include more practical things) !
