Orcas Island VI / 6×8 in / unframed oil on wood.
I started this one en plein air, on a really windy day, and finished it indoors. I was sitting on a rocky beach on the roots of a big bleached tree which was protecting me from the wind. In the painting is a beach house, and a couple trees and a picket fence. I wanted to capture the wind-blown feeling of those trees, and the lovely effect of the sunlight on the house.(#3323)
