Sunlight, shadows, color due to growth of plants, and a view of the sea, what more can a plein - air painter expect, early on a Sunday morning? The reason I head out so early, is to get those shadows painted in, otherwise the light becomes to saturated, which makes my job the more difficult for you the viewer to enjoy this scene. The shadows cast by the overhanging clouds created lovely effects on the earthy toned water.
