This is the first demo piece for the “Making Waves on Chantry” course. We have an excellent group of 11 participants! I resisted the urge to polish the painting and left it just the way it honestly came off the easel. I painted this from the floating dock. It was like painting from the back of a bucking horse.This is the view of the Chantry light keeper’s home and imperial tower as it looks in the morning light of late summer. A cold front had passed through the evening before leaving a dry and cooler air mass in its wake. The cumulus clouds were drifting along with the westerly wind and were soon to disappear altogether with continued daytime heating. The cirrus clouds were apparently along the northwesterly jet stream cirrus and lingered a bit longer.
