Huntington Marsh

  Good Morning Everyone     I can't believe it's been almost two months since I last posted in here.  Boy did this summer go fast.  I've had company since the 18th of June, so very little painting done.  While my granddaughters were here we made a visit to  a local state park.  This painting is from one of the marshes that I photographed.  The only thing different is I changed the time of day.  For the sky I used Cobalt Blue, Aliz Crem and Cad. Orange and carried this through into the water.  For the marshes I used Sap gr, Cob Bl, Ultra Bl, Winsor Green ( Blue Shade), Quin Gold, Burnt Umber and Cad Yellow. I painted this the first time and really didn't like it. So I figured what the heck do it again using stronger doses of the same color and it turned out better than I thought.    
  I hope everyone has had a lovely summer and please do comment.  Thanks all of you for looking.
