Stony Brook Plein Air


I actually enjoyed three days of plein air painting. Yesterday being the best of all. Stony Brook Harbor is a wonderful location, the day was magnificent. This was completed on site an 8x10 oil on canvas panel.

Happy painting everyone.

  3. Wonderful piece! I'm just starting with watercolor, I'm so hooked! I'm a woodturner first but when my back is in a pissy mood I paint. I'm a born/raised North Shore Long Island gal living in Setauket. Do you know of any local groups/resources for watercolor classes?

  13. Wonderful sense of atmosphere/color here...its really clean, and clear what the feel of the day was. Really like your edges in this one too...seems like the perfect balance here of hard to soft.
