I posted the initial block-in of this earlier; I'm calling this the finished version. It's really an amalgam of many views, sketches and photos of this subject during a short stay on Cape Cod. The rocks are covered in seaweed, and change color and catch the light in constantly changing combinations depending on time of day and tides. This view is contre jour with the morning sun approaching the zenith (check out the light on the buoy), so there are dark shadows and a bit of glare on the wet rocks.

Oil painting of breakwater extending from beach into water. Rocks are brown with green seaweed against a background of calm bay with white buoy.
