Swanson Island and Crease Island 2010
Another small oil sketch from the Broughton Marine Park series. Near these two interesting Islands the bald eagles were also fishing for those salmon. With precision each large bird swooped down over the waters with talons ready. Some of the fish were quite heavy but their large wings safely lifted them up and away from the waters. Sometimes birds are expected in waterscape paintings; I decided not to include them in this composition as it would have made this painting too busy.
