'Paint Camp' Day 3

8x10 Oil on Ampersand Board

This one from Wednesday is a little scene from a private beach area in West Barnstable.  I did most if this one with a palette knife.  When I switch from canvas surfaces to hardboard, it takes a while to gauge the flow of the paint and the consistency.  The lighthouse is on Sandy Neck and was far in the distance.  I am pleased with the result.  Not to say, the challenges of heat, bugs, people, sand, wind....well, still learning how to adapt to paintings 'plein air'.  But I love the lessons I am learning this week.  Not all are successful.  There have been some attempts this week that were pure wipeouts.  All part of the journey.  Off to paint now!
