Ogden Point Breakwater, Sunset, oil on canvas board, 6x6

This is a small painting with a big feel.  It was such a sunny warm day for October. But by the time I got out to paint a cold wind had come in. (When I finished painting I was shivering but satisfied).

 This is Ogden Point Breakwater. People love to walk out on it .

Personally, I don't like walking on it because I have a bit of fear of heights and there are no rails.

In this painting I used ultramarine blue, cadmium yellow light, and cadmium red medium, plus titanium white.

I chose this high horizon because I wanted to capture the feeling of the greatness of the sea.  Incidentally, I painted this from where the search and rescue and pilot boats are moored. (perhaps a future painting).
