Marina Point III

I'd be a fool not to do a plein-air painting today. This sort of looks like a snarling monster coming up out of the water--I should just turn it into that.
Watercolor, 7"x 7"

Snarling Rock would be a great title for this one, Sue! It's magnificent! Have you looked at Rockwell Kent yet? I think that you would love his work. I saw an exhibit of his work at The Portland Museum of Art a couple of years ago that was amazing. He not only made those grand rocky landscapes, but he did alot of delicate illustrative fashion drawings, too,which I'd never seen. He was a talented illustrator - check out his woodcut illustrations of Melville's Moby Dick. LOVE THEM.
Your range makes me think of Kent's - from grand gestural landscape to delicate detailed paintings!

I can't look at this one without seeing the snarling rock monster, so I am going to paint him into this one--so if anyone wants this one as is, better tell me now because soon it will change drastically--Sue
