Salt Marshes are incredible ecosystems and so wonderful to experience. I found a viewing tower to set up my easel in with a 360 degree view of the marsh and the hummock islands that dot it. To capture the graceful beauty of the flat, wet, grassy environment required generous strokes of juicy warm paint. The constant sounds of the low tide marsh serenaded my hours of work: squirting, squidging, popping, and splashing; there was a lot of drama going on unseen in that serene setting!
Later I found a lovely spot on a bridge over one of the many ponds where the herons and egrets and (what kind of bird is that!) one amazing Anhinga. I think he was showing off for me..or maybe just drying out the feathers. The most challenging part of painting at Kiawah was deciding on the subject...there was so much to choose from! Yay Nature!
