Digging Bait

Digging Bait
Oil on Canvas board
10 x 8 in or 25.4 x 20.3cm

Up on the fields of Little Dennis looking down to Gillan Harbour and along the creek.  In the distance two people dig for bait.  The tide is out and the tracery of the river can be seen.  Sun catches on the water like a handful of carelessly scattered diamonds and the wind is high but warm.
This is a study for a larger painting.  These big views lend themselves to much larger canvasses and besides I enjoy getting lost in them!
