Found a couple more from the week of intense drawing I did with Catherine Kehoe at MassArt last month.
This is done on cardboard, first drawn in graphite using the angles to block in the overall shape of the figure, moving from one point to the next with only straight lines.

Back to the lighthouse

Drawn to paint again in North Rustico, setting up on the edge of a narrow red dirt road along the shore. I was alone with nothing but the sun shining on me and the water lapping against the shore for a couple of hours but then the people started to come by. This lighthouse is on all the PEI tours!

North Rustico, PEI

I love this place. While I was painting, a charming gentleman stopped by, approaching me slowly and carefully on his cane, saying, "Paint anywhere my dear, have a look around wherever you like. Go anywhere out here and paint."

New Glasgow, PEI

I'm painting on Prince Edward Island and I'm in love! Everything and everyone up here is lovely beyond description.
Here's my first painting of the day.

1946 Ford

Came across this old Ford in Wells,ME and couldn't resist.
Did a drawing first (on cardboard) to familiarize myself with the structure.
Such amazing color in the rusted paint.
