Salt Marsh Views

I’m excited to share my oil on canvas painting with salt marsh views. The title of this rather large oil painting is “Dune Escape”. Who doesn’t need a little escape? Inspiration Inspiration for this sand dune escape is from Old Lyme, CT. Nestled at the mouth of the Connecticut River where it meets Long Island Sound. Old Lyme is a pretty shoreline town. Size This oil on canvas is 30″ x 30″ on a gallery wrap canvas. What that means is the side depth of the canvas sits 1.5 inches off the wall and the painting wraps around all...

I wanted viewers to feel the wind from that day at the beach. The...

Seaview Pen and Ink with Watercolor

Seaview from Lauderdale by the Sea features a bicycle rider viewing the ocean in the morning light. This original is in an art journal where I paint and draw local scenes. The paper is thick enough in the journal for watercolor and gouache paint. Below is the ink drawing before I added the watercolor. Starting with a pencil sketch to get most of the details. I will usually do a pencil drawing first, especially if there are people in the scene. Pen & Ink Lately I have been using a dip pen for inking. In search of a looser...
