Sunset on the Hamma Hamma Salt Marshes, 5" x 7", Oil on Panel


I've been forced to take a five hour drive home from my Tuesday Atelier class in Seattle due to the temporary closing of the Hood Canal Bridge. This usually brings me to the Hamma Hamma River and the adjacent salt marshes about sunset (we have long days here in Washington now). I haven't had my camera with me but I've pulled off the road and tried to take some mental notes that I could translate into a small study. Here's my first one. The water looks a bit greener here than in the actual painting. I guess I need some work with photoshop.

Thank you Fabio and Pete(Theartbrush)! It's so nice to get feedback from other talented people. I haven't painted many sunsets, so I'm glad this one came out well.
