No.3 of 30 in 30 Days Challenge - Karaka Bridge

Today the 3rd January, another painting to be completed for the 30 day challenge, and thought...

As I was going out to paint plein air at Karaka Bridge, could use this as my third painting. Super little spot, with deep water, and very fast in and out tides as a small inlet from the Manukau Harbour.  Quite a bright one for me.  Plein Air, studio adjusted as land was so brown and dry looking, consequently brightened up, adding oranges, yellows and greens, gave the sky and water also a bit of a boost - around 10pm.

Small problem, cannot post artwork this evening - tried several times tonight to photograph, however,  camera is not taking a good shot under lights in house, so shall photograph tomorrow - Now 9.00 am and able to photograph, however, has come out a little brighter than painting.

Painting No.3.  3rd Jan.
Karaka Bridge, 10"x12" oil on board, plein air.

Number 296 entry in site for the Challenge. Painted with a limited palette of 3 colours, ultramarine blue, perm.rose and yellow plus white of course.    Visit: leslie saeta on the blog for this.
