"Ebb Tide, Cattle Point" oil 11 x 14 plein air

A lot can happen in three hours - that's the time I had available to paint this oil at Cattle Point this morning. The tide was going out and at the end of the session this little bay was almost bereft of water. But when I got it home I saw that the composition was too cluttered so I simplified it and renamed it "Sails and Seagulls." Much better.
