Sunset on Carituck Sound

#170802  oil on canvas  9X12  plein air  (2017)

A small plein air painting of  a sunset over Carituck Sound.  The challenge was to catch the sun at the right time and it wasn't easy, because the sun doesn't wait. Sunsets don't last very long but fortunately, paintings do. The great landscape painter, John Carlson teaches that one of the most important skills for a plein air painter to have is a good memory,  I'm working at developing that skill and this painting is a nice memory of a very fine day.
