24 x 30 inch oil The Estuary

This painting is based loosely on some photos of the Cowichan Estuary that I have plus a bit of imagination and the color study that I did previously.  I really like the warm colors and wanted to do a large painting using reds and oranges.

Color Study 8 x 10 inch oil

This is a color study in preparation for a larger painting I plan on doing soon.  It is always good to work out the colors and composition before committing the time and effort into a larger piece.  The only thing I may change is this painting is the two trees.  I am not sure they are really working.
