I am a painter living in the Western Maine town of Weld. I am following the path of many other artists and have taken up Daily Painting...so I will be posting these (mostly) every day, the good, the bad and the ugly! I hope you enjoy following my progress. Please comment, the feedback will help!
I finally wrenched myself out of bed today, loaded up my gear and went outside to paint. The only goof I made was not packing the bug spray. I am not sure how many times I have attempted to paint Tumbledown Mountain, but this is the first time I have done it plein air and I feel pretty good about it.
There are a few peaks that are a bit sharp, but I am making progress outside. A wide brim hat and no sunglasses help tremendously with the colors. I am afraid I really do need some more pastels however, as I had a hard time with the greens...and some bug dope!
Back to painting after a week in Acadia. I did get some sketches done, but not enough.
