Jamestown Again

Returned to Dutch Harbor on Conanicut Island again to see if I could make something out of this beautiful harbor. It has been an overcast day with the sun peeking in and out so it made for fast painting to capture the initial light. I am running low on paint and am completely out of blues such as Cobalt and Ultramarine. As a result it is forcing me to use a Windsor Newton Cerulean blue that I dug out from the bottom of my paint box. Luckily, it interacts nicely with the Utrecht Orange I am using.

Expanding out from Matunuck

My first paint session out of Matunuck in quite a while! Spent the morning painting in Jamestown. This painting is from Dutch Harbor. Last night's rain soaked all of my canvas and paint rags so I only had an 8x10 and a paper lunch bag to wipe my brushes.

Matunuck School House

Back to Matunuck School House Road this morning. Using an 11x14 canvas that is very absorbent so I am finding I have to pile on paint or mix directly on the canvas.
