Hi Dan,
I absolutely love your style, you bring so much life to a work. The colour in this is fabulous and knowing you do this plein air is even more impressive. Really nice depth in this, the composition draws you right in to try and penetrate those distant blues. Wonderful!

Oooooh, Dan, what a good one! You sure work huge for plein air. How long did this one take you? Love your spot and setup as well. Are you still using the Golden primer on matboard? Do you color it with acrylic paint?

Hi Dan
You have an eye-catching style, and your colours are so full of energy they make me want to run into the sea in your picture :-)

Looking forward to seeing more of your work,

Was just browsing the new forum and saw this! WOW! Love the sky, your style the colors, the composition and depth of field. Most of all I love the way it makes me miss the northwest coast.

Thank you so much for sharing this.
