Daily Paintworks Challenge
I chose this scene for the latest Daily Paintworks Challenge. The task today was to chose a painting and when finished do a zoom in image of a part of that painting, on a smaller canvas. The first painting was painted on an 8 x 10 canvas board. It was from a photo I took at the end of summer, 2011. There is a lovely little boat launch and beach known as Shades Beach, in Harborcreek, Pennsylvania. My family had a few reunions at this spot, and I love to go there and look for interesting photography opportunities. This particular day was one of my personal weather favorites, bright, warm, sun and lots of wind. I love what the sun does to the water color as it peeks in and out of the fast moving clouds. The wave action was amazing that day, glad I painted an impressionistic version of this challenge, called the Seeing Double Challenge. I'm calling the upper painting, Shady Winds and the lower one Lake Erie Waves.
