Misty Morning Ruins - finished

"Misty Morning Ruins"
27" x 31" oil on gessoed masonite
23rd Annual Coastal National Juried Exhibition
St. Simons Island, Georgia
April 1 - May 1, 2010

After sleeping on it, I strengthened a few darks in the palm fronds, added some more greens in the shadowed foliage (which you can't see in the photograph because of the extremes in contrasts), then took it outside to get a better photo in daylight.  I contemplated putting an egret flying through the sunlit area, but decided against it.  It is so peaceful like it is, that I didn't want to disturb it.

I love this! I can see how it would be challenging to keep it misty looking, but you did it masterfully!
