Last week I was on Marco Island and spent a morning on the dock by a restaurant called Marker 8, in the neighboring fishing village of Goodland. I brought gouache and paper I had gessoed and captured a few moments. This is the first one. Haven't painted plein air since last fall, so there was the feeling of "How do I do this, where do I begin!". Eventually I settled down and did the usual, assessing values, finding shapes, mixing the right colors.
