La Push Boats 2


The first morning in La Push, I drove to the harbor parking lot and spent several hours working on this watercolor. It was a lot of fun...the rain beating down on the car, wind blowing across the harbor, classical music on the radio. I had a lot of trouble finding color because the day was so gray, and I had difficulty deciding what should be dark and what should be light. Also I had trouble filling so much paper with watercolor washes.  Despite my best efforts, the boat is way too long in proportion to its height.  Let's call it a learning experience.
