Rocky Shoreline, Grand Manan

After returning from Grand Manan in September, this drawing sat forgotten in a corner of my studio. I stumbled across it yesterday and revisited a nice bit of rocky coastline

This was a perfect morning to be out painting on Frenchman Bay. I need another 90 minutes to bang in the  water and foreground but I wanted to tackle those two areas with a fresh set of eyes. I’ve been doing tons of pencil drawings rather than oil paintings. out on location. It feels great to be settling into oil paint again.
