With a little help from my friends, I found this lookout from which to paint. I knew the thunderhead was over the mainland. I just was not sure if it would give me a show as the last sunlight warmed the tip of the cloud mass…

During gloomy, overcast days it is sometimes hard to find good subject matter to paint. The light is flat. It should be easy to capture since it does not change much, whereas on a sunny day shadows constantly shift or leave altogether. This was a bit harder as there were rents in the fabric of the clouds, allowing sun and/or blue sky in and out of the landscape…

I was not scouting for a particular view when I started out today. In my van by this beach path watching terns dive for their dinner, I wondered if the fishing would be good. Opening the tail gate to grab my fishing rod, I got my paints out instead.

One ferryboat went by me before I got the hint that maybe they were my subject for the day. It was nice to have 2 tries to capture each one as they passed by in the shipping lanes every hour or so…

“Trial Run”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.

I came near the harbor hoping for a sail to paint. This obliging boat appeared and reappeared a few times. She was capturing some good air. I was in the lee with enough breeze to keep away the newly hatched no-see-ums and mosquitoes. A very pleasant afternoon…
