Luminous Sky Over Horizon

I really enjoyed watching beautiful sky during a week long Caribbean cruise.  One can be fascinated for hours just looking at the sky and ocean.  Pure bliss.

"Summer Afternoon in Essex"
8 x 10 in

For the second painting of Paint Essex event, I setup behind Woodman's for a nice view of the town.

There were some thunderstorms in the area, making some dynamic cloudscapes.  Really enjoyed painting this piece.

Paint Essex Plain Air Painting - One Fine Summer Day


"One Fine Summer Day"
14 x 14 in
oil on canvas

Last weekend was the annual Paint Essex event.
Many artists participated once again to paint on a beautiful summer day.

After drawing a rough sketch, I immediately painted the sky and the water.  The tide changes quickly, so it's very important to put in the water's edge the way I like it.

Almost done laying in the greens.

After 2 hours, the tide completely filled the waterway and the appealing dark shadows were gone.  I'm glad that that part was already painted.

Almost done!

Paint Essex: Annual En Plein Air Painting and Wet Paint Auction Coming Up!

I'm looking forward to participating in Paint Essex - a 2-day event of plein air painting and wet paint auction - again this year!

The town of Essex with surrounding marshes of Essex Greenbelt is one of my favorite places to paint.  When I paint there, I feel like I can capture the wind.  Paint Essex is a nice event set in a charming location.

Plein Air Painting at Charles River Canoe and Kayak

I finally got to go out and do some plein air!

The group gathered at a spot across from Charles River Canoe and Kayak.  The view was great and weather was perfect.

I finally got to try out my new Guerilla Pochade Box.  It's a comfortable setup and I'm happy about it!
