Painting What I Was Longing to See


Herring Bay Sail, watercolor, 5″ x 7″

I think I did this one in under an hour, but I’m not sure.  I started it while we were without power from the hurricane earlier this week.  As the hours passed, the rain fell and the wind blew, making the day dreary and gray.  I was wishing for a peaceful sail on the Chesapeake Bay and a colorful sunset, so I painted one.  This is the view looking across Herring Bay towards Holland Point from my parents’ house, as I remembered it (not having access to any references).


120 Paintings

“It takes 120 bad paintings to know something about painting.”  –  Larry Seiler as quoted by Jeff Mahorney in his blog

Each painting is small in format and should be completed in about an hour or less.

My goals are to improve my technique, to paint faster, and to gain experience with a variety of subjects.
