"Rocks at Lowtide, Cattle Point" 8 x 10

Painted in oils en plein air in an hour, I was drawn by the sparkles on the water backed by a bank of mist (fog) on the horizon. I wanted a simple seascape that would reflect my enchantment with this fugitive scene - I came away a happy camper!

Lovely seascape. In an hour? I am impressed. How strange to be called cattle point.

Thanks Maryanne -Cattle Point got its name from the cowboys on Vancouver Island. In the days of sailing ships there was no jetty here, so when ships delivered cattle the sailors simply dropped them overboard and the poor creatures had to swim ashore. Mean, hey? And look at those rocks ...

Very nice work - you captured the atmosphere beautifully.

Thank you - the lighting lasted about thirty minutes before the sparkles left ...
