An early evening low tide at Sunlight Shores on Whidbey Island. The large land mass on the right is Double Bluff, where dogs run leash-free. I'm so looking forward to the low spring tides, when one can walk way out for hours and hours.
I've been experimenting with some new colors from M. Graham, wanting to find more transparent replacements for earth colors such as burnt sienna. I've found many that mix nicely with my standard blues; cobalt and ultramarine. Here I've incorporated Transparent Red Iron Oxide, a little Azo Orange with Cobalt Blue, Ultramarine and Dioxazine Purple. Greens are Sap and Hookers yellowed up with Gamboge.
