Gray Day Roosevelt Beach

Last week, we went clam digging on the Washington coast on the last open clam tide of the spring.    It was a gray day with headlands obscured in clouds and mist.  This was painted on location at the end of Roosevelt Beach. The bluffs are steep and formed of barely compressed orange sandstone.  The orange sandstone color lends a warm tone to the sand of the beach.  I like the lost headland. On my ETSY store

Lovely atmospheric mood and such a familiar one in my corner of the world (Atlantic Canada)!

Love the loos brushwork and the flashes of orange among the beautiful greys.
