I painted this one today, reminiscing about Acadia National Park again. The view is from Sand Beach. Unlike Jersey beaches, the sand here is composed of crushed shells, and the water is extremely cold all year round. It is quite fun to visit in the summer to watch unsuspecting bathers run into the waves to cool off on that one hot day in August! This watercolor is a 9 x 12.
I painted this one in about thirty minutes ! I must have been in the groove because it is my favorite work in a long time. In fact, it is already framed and hanging on my wall. I worked from a rather nondescript photo that I took in 1982. There is a lot more color and definition in the watercolor.
This painting has been sold.
This is approximately 7 x 12, and is a watercolor/collage. Painted from photos that I took last autumn of this striking old place that is still in use. The dead tree is sort of symbolic of the direction that these architectural relics are taking. The fence in the foreground is cut from a separate piece of watercolor paper. NA
