Mare Island Afterglow

A nocturne painted near Crocket, CA for the Valona Invitational Paint Out held at the Epperson Gallery. Sergio Lopez and I decided to try a nocturne after painting earlier in the day. I'm pretty happy with the piece considering how difficult it was to see the scene and the painting while painting it. The sun was already way down and there was this really interesting light on these unusual whispers of clouds. Colors mainly painted from memory as I just got a couple spots down before it faded out. This did not photograph particularly well. This received an Honorable Mention Award.
