I’ve been working away on some studio projects. It’s fun to get into some of these paintings from photos and sketches this past summer. It’s a reminder of some of the great spots around here, and some fun places I have visited. This was painted at a boat shed on North Haven, where I taught a workshop last August. North Haven is a quiet island in Penobscot Bay, with some really great subject matter. I had very limited painting time myself during the class, but I got some small sketches and photos.
I have also done a bit of plein air work lately too, and it’s been nice to have the balance of the two approaches. The speed and gesture of painting in the fast light and cold of the winter keeps me loose. I’ll post some of the newer plein air paintings soon.
