Today I finished up this oil study of a site out near Great Head in Acadia. I like the view and will proceed with a more detailed pencil drawing and perhaps a larger oil painting. I’ve worked larger out on this site before but always run into problems as the perch is somewhat cramped and uneven.
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.
Work in progress… Also, a terrible photo from my ipod. Apologies. Will update soon.
