This scene is on a salt marsh in Cape Cod. I painted a small version of this in the last 30 Day painting challenge (see below). I also posted the photo I worked from below.
It is an interesting process to move from a small painting sketch (8 X 8) to a large studio painting (20 X 20"). It gave me the chance to use my large palette knives and large strokes. This is still not finished but getting close. I plan to exhibit this is my show next February.
Here is the original 8" x 8" painting I did.
Here is the original photo of the marsh in Wellfleet, Mass.
