Morning mist Three Cliffs Bay

I always get up early well at least before 7am. So when we stopped at Three Cliffs Bay we were down on the beach as the mist was lifting. The painting above shows a couple walking across the beach with the sun breaking through the mist. Getting the atmospheric effect relies on scumbling. This is a technique as old as oil paints. It basically involves putting, dragging, stippling opaque paint over a darker one generally when it has dried to some extent.
