All quiet in the park

I went out into Acadia National Park this morning to draw near Otter Cliffs. I saw not another soul all morning. The light, what there was of it, was beautiful, the quiet, quite splendid. Eventually the wind came up and the work had to end.

Currently on the easel… I’ve long been fond of this particular view of a cluster of trees out near the tip of Great Head in Acadia. 24 x 36 is a larger piece than I am accustomed to painting although I am finding the larger scale to be very appealing.

It was a very quiet day out in the park. This may have had something to do with the fact that it was cloudy dark,  34 degrees F and very windy. The weather has turned. I look forward to sketching in the dark rocks that punctuate the shoreline.

I am a few sessions into this drawing. The weather is getting colder and the beach is quieting down.
