"Morning Shore" Whidbey Island Plein Air painting by Robin Weiss

"Morning Shore" 6x8 oil on panel  $350


This was the first painting I did down by the Keystone Ferry during the Whidbey Island Plein Air competition.  The morning mist was just lifting and the soft shapes of driftwood and distant homes were appearing out of the fog. I laid my underpainting down quickly and then squinting I put in the dark and light shapes I saw not concerned yet with nouns but more with other words, not things but light and dark shapes. then going back in and modeling the cool light in the distance to the warmer tones in the foreground. This painting never made it into the show but is one of my favorites.
