Landscape in Progress
I've stated work on a new landscape, a scene from Scarborough Beach, Maine. I'm applying what I have been learning in the plein air classes to this painting, which is being worked from a photo I took last year. The use of an earth tone palette will work great for this landscape, seen as a cloudy moody day. The picture above shows the first few hours of work. So far the progress of this painting is going fast, as of last night the whole canvas is now covered with color. The next couple of nights will be about defining shapes and adding small details here and there, but while still keeping it loose.
