No. 319 - Sunrise over the Marsh

10" x 8" - Oil on Canvas Panel

No. 319 is one more interpretation of the marsh view from Amelia Island. One huge thing I learned at the workshop with John MacDonald is that I do not have to blindly follow the photograph. It was amazing to watch him move things around on the fly to improve the composition or feel of a painting. So with this one I kept the paint very fluid at the start and moved it around until I was happy. I had toned the canvas with a warm color, and it gave the painting a sunrise vibe that felt great, so I followed it.
