Tomales Bay (revisited)

Acrylic on Canvas Board

I tried re-working the original study to improve the detail and composition, but I think the quality of light that actually inspired me originally is now gone.  I'd heard about this phenomenon, but haven't really experienced it before. And now I can't really remember what I wanted it to look like anyway. Hmmmm. My reference photos of this are terrible, and my memory and eye are not yet trained enough to remember properly. Some day. Maybe.

Oh, and the cow was in one of my reference photos so I thought I'd put that element in, but it doesn't really add anything for me.
