Plein Air--"Chasing Dolphins"

Painting here with the glaring sun was just about impossible without sunglasses! I had to peer above them constantly to get the colors/values like I wanted them, but that was OK. It's so gorgeous, with the constantly changing turquoise colors on the water, I felt compelled to try and capture some of it.

My husband and daughter had gone out kayaking in front of me, and I had already put that in before they had come back in. But when my daughter saw what I had painted, she told me about the dolphins they had seen and said "Oh Mom, you have to put the dolphins in--they were so cool". So, with her guiding me, I painted them in:-)
