Woody Island Lagoon

A scene from Kodiak Island where I used to live.  I like the composition of this painting.  There's a nice placement of the horizon line.  The colors are harmonious (ultramarine blue and burnt sienna make a wonderful gray).   I've divided the page up in a dramatic and interesting way, because I have a large piece of medium value a small piece of light value and a smaller piece of dark value.  Not a sunny day, but still some interesting light in the horizon.
