You know the saying, 'if they through lemons at you, make lemon juice' That is exactly what I am doing in this series! The weather is getting warmer, but the Sea temperature is still extremely cold, so this is what happens. You get this thick mist hanging around for hours. It does make for a rather atmospheric painting. It looks easy enough to do, but belief me, to represent depth in these scenes does take some trickery. And that is were experience comes in to do the job that needs to be done. After working on the large painting, I attempted a smaller panoramic format, which is shown here (BF#2).
