Painting in Easton, MD

3 Sailboats in Oxford by Jane McElvany Coonce

Last weekend I went up to Easton, MD to paint for four days with a group of artists.  It was one of the hottest weekends this year!  We went over to Oxford, Maryland, and I did some boats in the marina.  We couldn't paint for very long because it was so hot.  Plein air painting has it's share of problems: bugs, wind, heat, rain.  Yes, we even got sprinkled on one day.  The painting above is one I did with a limited palette.  I didn't take my standard array of colors.  I only took blue, red, yellow and white. It's much harder, I think, mixing the exact color you want, but it makes the load lighter than having to lug 20 different tubes to paint.

  1. You have captured the heat of the day well and also brought back fond memories of when we had a boat in Oxford:)
