High Noon at the Gravel Spit I by 

Ordinarily the gravel spit below Salem’s pedestrian bridge is a family place. One afternoon though it was filled with tension as angry young men jostled for attention, but did not quite come to blows.

Transparent watercolor on 140 lb cold-pressed paper. Approximately 8 × 10 inches. This painting was created entirely by using the mask and pour technique.

  • Thank you. This one is unlike most of my paintings. I keep looking for another opportunity to use this more graphic technique.

    What a great subject and such a fantastic viewpoint! This is fantastic!…One can feel the tension and aggression in these young men. The colours are perfect and reflect the mood …the shadows, the backgound colours and the trail of carefully placed “paint spots” re enforce their aggression and agitation.This is so good!

  • Thank you so much!
