|Afternoon By The Pamet River, 12 x 9 pastel on board|
Fearing coming back home with just photo references, I set myself the goal of producing three paintings every day. I know it sounds crazy, but that goal helped me at times when because of the heat, rain, or tiredness I felt like doing nothing.
Our home base was in N. Truro and the area being new to me, provided lots of subjects to paint everywhere I looked. The painting above, was done on location, by the post office in Truro, a place almost hidden by tall grass. I don't think I did justice to the light and the haze of late afternoon.
The following two paintings are variations of the one above and they were done indoors the last day of our stay, simply because it rained the whole day. When I find a place that speaks to me, I like to imagine what it would be like under different weather conditions.
