Baie Verte marshes

Baie Verte is a small town in New Brunswick, Canada, that I pass through when I'm taking the scenic route to Amherst, Nova Scotia. It's a charming little town, and surrounded by lovely tidal marshes. When the tide is low you often see Great Blue Herons wading in the water. I've taken tons of photos of the marshes, always thinking what lovely paintings they would make. And tonight I decided to actually do one of them! This is from a photo I took last summer, and is done on 9x12 Art Spectrum paper.

I was there back in mid-October, and the marshes were gorgeous with deep orange and gold autumnal colors. I may have to try a painting next of those lovely autumn colors.
