Waiting on the Tide

Waiting on the Tide
Oil on gesso board.
4 x 8 in or 10 x 20.3 cm.

The tide is out leaving a boat high and dry, just a glimmer of water is left like a shard of glass splitting the dark treeline and the seaweed strewn river bed.

I'm liking these long landscape formats you're using.

I've recently decided to try doing more of landscapes like this because I think it really adds something to drawings and paintings of the great outdoors. Maybe because it more accurately reflects our natural span of vision?

and was wondering,is it the way we look?
