"Ship Wreck Rock" Paint the Peninsula 2018 plein air landscape painting by Robin Weiss

"Ship Wreck Rock"  6x8 oil   Sold

Another scene from Second Beach on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State painted during Paint the Peninsula 2018. This year was a mixed bag as far as weather was concerned. The fog kept moving in and out making it difficult to decide on what atmosphere to base the mood of your design. That is one reason I pulled out a 6x8 panel for this painting. I was able to capture the scene quickly before everything changed again. The fog simplifies the shapes, removes detail and reduces values so that you can have fun just designing.  After this one I clambered over the driftwood and headed back up the trail to do a few paintings at the Quilute Marina in LaPush.

a beautiful, atmospheric painting, Robin. At first, I thought it was Haystack at Cannon Beach.
I have seen it come and go in the fog.
