I took a series of photos of the cliffs at Aquinnah. We were there as the tide had just turned so there was a lot of standing water. This more colorful bluff is east of the one in the previous painting. My New Years resolution was to paint big but this is on a more comfortable 12" x 12" canvas.
This canvas is huge by my standard, 3 feet by 3 feet. Over Christmas we visited Aquinnah on Martha's Vineyard and walked the beach on a foggy morning. I took lots of photos and did a little monochrome sketch. This is just the first of many paintings from photos of our visit to Martha's Vineyard. I have lots more to explore, but perhaps not quite as large next time, definitely not as large!
This past summer I was fortunate to attend a workshop with Colley Whisson at the Landgrove Inn in Landgrove, VT. Colley is an Australian artist
