Fort Beausejour (Maritime series 6)

 I still have not made it to Nova Scotia though I'm inching closer. This is from a reference photo of Fort Beausejour, in Aulac, NB. It sits almost right on the border between New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, at the edge of the Tantramar Marsh, and adjoining the Chignecto Basin, which is an arm of the Bay of Fundy. 

It was a drizzling, misty day when I took this ref, though you could catch a faint hint of the sun trying to burn off the fog. But it was still most cool and misty looking in the distance, and I wanted to see how I could do with a softer cooler palette than I usually use. 

Bad or good, I have to say I had a lot of fun working on this. I have not done enough landscapes yet to feel I have a particular "style" but I'm sure enjoying it, and today was especially enjoyable for some reason.
