Wingaersheek beach Gloucester, Ma

This is a 16x20 oil on canvas of Wingaersheek Beach with The Annisquam light house in the background.
There were a lot of seagulls flying around and trying to steal what was in my backpack. wish I had my camera. I'm glad they did'nt add any additional color to my palette Take Care, Paul

You don't need a camera when you can do a plein air as well as this. Great job, Paul, wonderful colour in the dunes.

I am really enjoying this piece. Love the light pallete also and the movement. Bit worried the nearest seagull has left aileron too far down but hey that's just me being picky! Great work.

Re: Wingaersheek beach Gloucester, Ma

Thanks all, for your inspiring comments.
My Father who is a well know Marine artist in this part of the world, can no longer paint due to his Macular degeneration, and has finally come out of his funk of not being able to paint and been has imparting his wisdom on me. I think he has helped me loosen up and not worry about the details and think more of values and color. He has also talked me into painting on a larger surface than I normally have been. These oldtime Cape Ann artists always painted large on location. I think this has also helped him mentaly. I've been helping him out in trying to see and paint. He needs help in seeing and placing the compostion and paint on the canvas. His colors are very bright and makes for an almost abstract look. Ok, enough of this story. I get my long windedness from him. Must be the Sicilian in me
Take care all, Paul
