Yesterday I met Kelley and Ros and we painted in Hull. It was a glorious day. I shot a bunch of photos and did a nice block-in of the old building which houses the repair shop for the carousel horses. Very old fashioned and cool. There was on old Jeep out front and that's what I focused on. I hindered myself some by not having a proper setup (no side table to put stuff on, hand held palette, etc.) and I muddied up the color too much from not switching brushes. The photo is the initial sketch. The main thing is that it was fun. Afterward I went up to the Cemetery by the old Fort, took more pictures and enjoyed the clear view of Boston Light and the Harbor Islands, Graves Light, Minot's Light and the Boston skyline! Awesome!
