Yesterday Mike and I went searching for the Seatuk , know as the Scully Manor. I first became aware of this beautiful place from my friend Joan who posted her lovely painting on her blog. Later I spoke with Sue, another fellow painter and she gave me directions on how to get there.
Long story short, I did this on location, sun in my eyes could not do it justice and will return. As for Mr. Webster, in the 90's he commissioned me to do a portrait of his St. Charles Spaniel, Roxanne. I would go to his estate and sketch Roxanne, and then later painted her portrait. Mr. Webster was the founder of the Seatuk Environmental Society in which his property and that of the Scully Manor are all one. Happy Painting everyone.
