42 Placida Fishery

Diane Mannion, 42 Placida Fishery, 6x6" oil, plein air

Had set up on the dock to paint a rusty old shrimp boat but rain forced me under my car's hatch back.  A complicated scene started on top of an old demo painting.  Began with limited palette experiment again... yellow ochre, ultramarine blue, red iron oxide, and white, but had to add Indian yellow and orange to make the palm tree come forward.  Really too much going on for such a tiny panel, but good practice.  My favorite spot is the water where I put the paint on and left it. Overworked and not my favorite, but a nice tourist stopped by and told me it was beautiful.
