Here are the small daily landscapes for the third week. I did another Beacon Marine landscape. The drawing took a long time to do. I basically drafted it, using a vanishing point and a ruler. It took hours to do but was well worth it in the end, I think. The actual painting part didn’t take long. I love walking along this bit of East Main St. in Gloucester. Lots of interesting things to look at. It feels comfortably familiar, what I think of as typical of my part of the world. Very New England – been here a long time and hopefully will continue to be here a long time. There is a painting of a clammer hauling his boat out at Conomo Point in Essex, one of the old Madfish on Rocky Neck (one of the rumors floating around is that a previous owner lost it in a game of Monopoly), and another of a sunset out over the breakwater in Gloucester. There is another sunset on some rocky coast, and two seascape studies. These last are going to take some work. I haven’t painted many breaking waves. I am excited to learn how. I can watch the waves forever and not be bored. There is deep peace in the way water moves.
