#30 Liz Cutler, 9x12 oil on canvas panel - Hadley Point Beach

I am at day 4 of one of Acadia Workshops week with Michael Chesley Johnson. Georgous spots all over the quieter side of Mount Desert Island. I think I am a plein air addict. The rock painting demo was a big help, as is the cocoon painting holders I got.
This one is at the beach near our house, I plunked myself down on a log and dove right in, thinking of values and color temperature. Funny how being outside just standing still for 7 hours is so tiring.

Love the blends of color in the foreground rocks and water. Just gorgeous!

I agree. The "color temperature" is wonderful.

This paintings makes me miss painting with oils, such nice soft and creamy water, subtle shifts of color, then sharp when you want it on the rocks in the foreground for example. I also like the warm rocks against the greenish water.
