Morning Sail

This past summer I spent a night at some friend's vacation home on Lake Michigan near Manistee. Early in the morning I did an oil sketch of their view to the water. With the sun coming up behind me, I worked quickly to try and capture the dynamic shadows and color. Working from that study and photos I took at the time, I just completed this larger studio version.
