Bainbridge Island plein air

Port Madison plein air
9 x 12

4 value Notan plan

my palette

set up on the bow

Morning quiet, except for the loon who insistently called for his mate.

Mirror-like water and bright light warming every surface, including me! I can see that I deviated from my original notan sketch (a simplified value sketch). I attempted to pay close attention to the mid tones and use temperature to create interest.
