Day 8 of 30 - Fisherman's Warf Monterey, Ca

Fisherman's Warf Monterey, Ca  - Day 8 of  30

Mde it to day 8 of the 30 day challenge but it's getting harder to find enough time in the day

Still sticking with the water theme, I've chosen to paint Fisherman's Warf from a photo I took last year. Seems like there are stages of painting for me.  At first I had to learn the techniques in Oil painting which are almost reverse from what you do with watercolor which I have painted with my whole life.  I focused more on objects, like fruits, bowls, etc until I felt comfortable with them. Now I'm trying to really express a feeling.   The morning sunrise, a stormy sunset, a night view of the marina, and today I've tried to expres this clarity and beauty of the Monterey water.
