Southampton Art School - Winds, Waves and Weather - Chantry Light Dawn

I was at Gerry's Fast Foods by 7:30 am and ready to paint. It was cloudy but mild and no one was on the beach. Clouds were drifting off the land in the nocturnal land breeze. A layer of fog hung on the horizon over Lake Huron. There were enough breaks in the deck of stratocumulus that the sun was able to shine on the white Imperial Tower of Chantry Island. My subject matter had to be Chantry, the light house and the clouds. I turned this scene into a skyscape. Small waves lapped at the shoreline and that was the only sound in the air.
