This painting was inspired by the beautiful waters of Lake Michigan which is about a mile from where I live.  It could be any large body of water, really….  I loved the challenge of painting the waves and giving movement to them.  I am happy with the outcome and I can feel the fresh air when I look at this.

I used just Chromatic black (Gamblin) plus white this time to make 4 shades of this blue-green-grey color.  This was painted over a Portland grey (Gamblin) underpainting so some of that warm grey color is showing through especially in the lower left corner.
