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!
