Life on the beach

I am going to continue documenting the trip to a coastal New England village. I have started a street scene and I will post a demo of that tomorrow or the next day.

Above, Ignat Ignatov paints overlooking the water.

Here is the gang lined up in front of the model, her knee is at left.

Here I am in the sun, painting with Frank Gardner. I started a 26" by 29" today and got about halfway through it.

Frank painting out on the waterfront and below is the historic Charles Hawthorne studio. Some of the guys painted up there today.

Below, I am pictured appraising some remaining cigar material, my picture is on the easel behind me.

Below, Jeremy is painting an interior.

Here is a sunset on the beach. Tomorrow I am going to paint down there. Then I will have two pictures going.

Here is Daniel Corey. Painting all day was not enough so he is out painting the night with a headlamp.

Thanks for posting; looking forward to seeing more pictures from your trip; Charles Hawthorne studio is haunting.

Glad the weather changed up for you guys. I would love to be there.

I went off to draw the model last night after your stories. I didn't do as bad as I thought but not as good as I'd like.

The week will finish up in a big glorious weekend. Couldn't be more beautiful there. Street scenes..I love street scenes. It will be a winner.

Despite the beautiful weather here, I have to do the trip...and finish up a still life in the dungeon. Fall in new England is why I want to learn how to paint landscape.

Very cool...You can almost see Hawthorn pontificating in that room.

So, someone has saved Hawthorne's studio, then? A few years ago, I heard that it was ready to be sold to the highest-bidding developer. What a great space!

It is still wacky, I am chasing the gremlins out of it.
