Thanks for hosting and the great ref rock chick.
oil on canvas pad something between 90 minutes and 2 hours.

I got rid of the people who were waiting and have been looking a lot at foggy moody paintings this week. I wanted to add that feeling so there is not a lot left of the ref pic I am afraid.

I had a lot of fun making this one. I don't care very much for landscapes so there was much less pressure. I just had fun with the paint.

I really like your interpretation...you successfully achieved the atmosphere of the foggy air and temperamental waters ...and I like particularly that rolling wave to the shore

This is wonderful and you definitely caught the atmospheric look. I wouldn't worry about it not having much resemblance to the original photo as they are references.

This is great. I wondered how folks would interpret this ref as it was such a dismal view. I love the atmosphere you have created and it does remind me of the time i spent there.

Definitely looks cool and foggy. Especially the sky where it meets the water.

Love the atmosphere on this. It reminds me of a trip I took with my family as a child. We went camping along the coast and the mist was thick each morning.

The atmosphere in this transported me back to just such a scene in Fort William in Scotland, which I adored, so this has only wonderful associations for me ! Really, really like this.
