Over the holiday weekend I went to Eastern WA and stayed one night in Moses Lake. Next morning I rode up to Dry Falls and was looking down from the cliff along SR-17. From the beginning I got frustrated with the colors I was making. They were much more vibrant, especially greens, than the ones on my palette. Besides those edges were not sharp enough to make out islands on the water. Probably I should have connected dark shapes together at the beginning as Jim Lamb taught in the past.
I'll probably make a larger format in the future to study the colors.
