Plein Air Painting with Carol and Colin

6"x6" oil on canvas panel

On Monday, I had the pleasure of painting with Carol Marine, Colin Page, Suzanne deLesseps, and Bruce McMillan, at some of my favorite boat painting places. We started in South Freeport at the town landing and moved on to the Royal River boatyard in Yarmouth. My best effort was "Diligence" (the name of the vessel), one of the lobster boats that make their home in South Freeport. Isn't she a beauty?

Bruce took some wonderful photos of the artists, my favorites are below:

  1. Love the greens in the water and the blues on the boat. Thanks for sharing the pictures, too!

  2. Wonderful colors in this! Love the way you handled the sky and trees in the background. Wonderful scenes with boats you have in Maine. Hope to get there in the future!

  3. Hey sis, thanks for the comments. We'll go see this boat next time you visit.

    Lori, you must get to Maine, it's not that far. (And I should get down your way more often.)
