About a month ago, I painted a scene at Fort Ebey State Park here on Whidbey Island. It was a scene looking through the fir trees towards the beach. You could see the Olympic Mountain foot hills across the water but the mountains themselves were lost in the haze. I was not satisfied with that painting but was attracted to the scene. So, I did another take in my studio using my original painting and a photo taken at the time as reference. I like this one better but still am not capturing something. Stay posted; the third pass is coming soon.
