Again, I'm posting an image of an inlet Merrick Bay in Freeport, NY at Cow Meadow Park. Late Winter/early Spring is my preferred time to paint there. One, there are significantly less bird watchers and/or visitors, and two, the temperature is considerably more comfortable, especially since it does not bring about mosquitoes. This is an acrylic painting layered in washes like watercolor, and I tried to puncuate the shaded foreground with a spot of blue on the right hand side. The wind was picking up so the cloud cover on the marsh was changing constantly.
