Caspersen Rocks

Back Again

Started this yesterday with the Peace River Painters and SRQ Artists.  This morning, I went back to the same spot again on Caspersen Beach to add a few finishing touches.  
This is how it looked yesterday... wanted to add more without overworking.  Photo ref didn't give me enough information.  So spent an hour or so adding finishing touches on location.  I wanted to do more but will save that for a larger version.  Happy with composition and glad I went back to the same spot.  Really pleased with results!
Easel setup yesterday with all-important thumbnail sketch.
 Thumbnail sketches help me visualize values and composition.
