Scottish Landscape

I took a photo from a golf course in Scotland looking back at the the town's little harbor and breakwater.  The town is North Berwick.  Located on the south shore of the Firth of Forth, and about 25 miles east of Edinburgh.  What I like about the photo and this painting is the simplicity of content.  As you can see, or will see better when I'm further along is that the sea and sky kind of blend together.  The Island rock known as Bass Rock on the left of the painting, is a noticeable landmark for this town, and a nice balance for the weight of the buildings on the right hand side. 
The foreground will be mostly green grass of the golf course.  I should be onto that in about a week.  Thanks for checking in.  Cheers,  Mark
