I stayed in Bremerton last night and drove up to Port Townsend to deliver my show piece to Northwind Art Center. But before going there I stopped at Fort Worden and walked down to North Beach then spent about two hours to paint. I started values on the bluff too light. So at the end, I had to push it further but it was too late because sun was too high at that time and values and colors shifted and counldn't get the original context.
I might try this in large scale later but need to remember what failed.
