Today when we arrived at the harbor it was socked in with fog, everything vanished into the beautiful grey of fog. I waited until the fog lifted and a few boats appeared and I painted this scene as quickly as possible. By the time I had finished the sky was blue and it was a crystal clear sparkly Maine day. What a wonderful place to paint. The grey I used was burnt sienna and ultramarine blue with a hint of raw sienna in the upper part of the sky. This gives the impression of light filtering through the fog. I love the scene looking across the canal and up the hill into Rockport Village. I made sure that I used the path to lead into the village without it being too much of a contrivance. I was most taken by the lovely green trees and how they highlighted the roofs and porches of the building. I really tried to keep this painting simple although it does seem to have an overly complicated feeling. It was mighty busy and I think I toned it down a lot.
