Avalon-value and temperature

"Avalon Splash" 5"x7" oil
"Distant Storm" 5"x7" oil
Normally I find the light changes more quickly at dawn than early evening but with a storm on the horizon I had time to crank out two studies of value and temperature. This morning the values were less compressed than the previous posting when I had to deal with haze and fog.

All of these sea paintings from your trip are just so beautiful. They have just the right amount of 'nothing' vs. 'something'. perfect. Now make them big. :)

Hi Karen, I would love to make these paintings really big. It's one of those things simmering on the back of my mind just waiting.

So maybe Leffel's mantra, "a little bit of something and a whole lot of nothing" is kicking in.

Thanks Karen
