Workshops: Rockport, Maine, Day 3 “Rain, Rain, Rain”

The forecasted locally heavy rainfall and we were right where it was the most local, thanks to the Camden Yacht Club for letting us set up on the covered porch, and stay mostly dry, and warm.  My demonstration was on extremely wet paper and I had no opportunity to stop and shoot images.  I have the finished piece which I am posting.  The goal in this painting is to learn as much as possible from the weather conditions and to get comfortable with the wet process, not much choice in this.  I also tried to keep the values close together and to achieve a wet and damp color feeling.  “Camden in the rain” 14 x 20 on Arches 140CP blockView from the porch, nice weather in Gore Tex.  But today it is going to be better.  See you tomorrow.  Steve
