Early morning start

I pass by this view most days and have become a little immune to it. 

But early this morning the light was hitting the water and softening the cliffs so I decided to try a quick oil sketch of it.

Here's Torbay harbour or the start of it on an 8 x 8 canvas. The ocean currents here always form lovely shapes across the water.

And yes, the table in my studio is always this full.  I need more space.

I love this painting.

Nice new profile picture also.

Thanks Valerie. I'll put a bit more 'oomph' into it to give a better idea of the real view.

It is pretty there DD. The ocean is constantly changing.

Hi Peggy, good to hear from you again. Glad you enjoy the painting.
