East Islip Marina Plein Air

Last Tuesday we went to the East Islip Marina. I used my Tom Brown pochade and the day was delightful. My husband sat reading his book while I painted. In the process of studying the sky and water, a motor boat came into view. I quickly did a gesture sketch of the boat, there wasn't enough time to take a photo, so this is the best I could do.

Hopefully we will return to this spot next week. Happy painting everyone.


  1. Hi there Joan!... Happy to see "You" out there with your husband... a grand way for folks to share the experience! Everyone's a winner!

    Love the softness in this one... the "gestural treatment" of the boat fits nicely with the soft edges in the middleground landform... and that lovely feathery sky!

    Well done!

    Good painting!
    Warmest regards,

  2. You did a wonderful job with this boat speeding into view! Well done!

  3. Lovely job Joan. The motor boat is great and you only got a quick glimpse of it. Well done.

    What a lovely way to spend a peaceful day. just the two of you.

  4. Hi Joan,
    a beautiful very expressive boat going to engoy his day! Wounderful , very nice oil !

  5. Joan I swear, if I don't look quick at this painting, that boat is going to speed right out of the scene :)n Wonderful and full of action!!!

  6. Joanie, I agree with all of the above! The boat feels like it is racing right past the viewer. The softness of the lines adds to that feeling. Lovely blues.

  7. Hi Bruce,

    Thank you so much for your comment. What I truly appreciate is that I see my art through your eyes. I continue to learn by visiting your blog and seeing your wonderful work and by your words. Again I say Thank You. Have a wonderful day.

  10. Hi Mariano,

    We miss your wonderful paintings. Please try to paint just one if you can. I hope everything is well with you. Thank you for your words, I appreciate your comments. All the best to you.


  11. Hi Janice,

    That is exactly how it was, so fast, no time to think it was great to attempt a quick gesture. I will visit your blog, I love what you have been painting. Happy painting to you.


  12. Hi Suzy girl.

    I wish you could come up for a few days and we will go plein air painting together. I love the Lab. Talk later.


  13. Joan, that boat is certainly moving, well done my friend. It looks a nice serene painting altogether. I have just managed to post a painting of Tower Bridge. It`s the first time I have painted this marvelous piece of Architectuar. All the best Joan.

  14. Hi Vic,

    Thank you so much my friend. It is a honor when I receive a compliment on a boat or water painting from you. I am on my way to comment on your wonderful bridge painting.


  15. By painting it so fast, you have captured the spirit and speed of the boat, Joan!

  16. Hi Marie,

    Thank you and yes I can't believe that it was possible to capture so much so fast. I will be over to visit you. I actually want to ask you about your floral in watercolor pencil.
