"Geographical Marker - Cattle Point" 9 x 12

This is my quick oil sketch done in situ within 90 minutes.  Upon the stone plinth is a brass plaque showing you where the surrounding physical features are located,  i.e. Seattle is 75 miles away from Cattle Point in Victoria BC, San Juan island is seven miles ... and so on.

Really like this piece Ron...I think you very nicely, as per-usual,captured the winter colours with this piece! It is a lovely spot.

You're right, Jeffrey - a lovely spot. Usually I don't paint this close up but I like colour shapes, especially when they are a challenge, like these grey 'uns.
