Whidbey Overlook II
I painted Whidbey Overlook II as a 16" by 20" from Whidbey Overlook I, a 4" by 6" plein air study. I see that the colors are more saturated and with less red mixed with the greens in the larger studio piece. In the larger painting, I changed the position of the golden field to a slant and I think it lost some of the perspective and a sense of ground by doing that. Whidbey Island is such a great place to paint and I'm going back soon.
