We drove up from southern Maine and when we arrived at Mt Desert Is. it was early evening - just in time to get up to the Blue Hill overlook to catch the sun before it set. We were hoping this sunset promised good weather !
Here I am the next day just beyond Sand Beach. It's awesome painting on the park loop road in Acadia National Park- you can pull your car over in the right lane and park. I set up like this to save time and go to many locations in one day.
This was a view of Otter Cliffs that I could see from the road. Here's the 8-10 min sketch I did in markers & watercolor. This summer is the first time I painted outdoors in water color. It is so fast its mind boggling.
My wonderful husband Marcus came on this trip and he took the pictures of me painting. Here I am in the thick of painting my 20 min field sketch. I love doing these as I learn so much and can go to many different locations in a day. You can tell by my gloves it was windy & cold on the water... I stayed warm by painting !
