Sandy Point 1

This is yesterday's painting from the Pastel Painters of Maine paint out at Plum Island, Newburyport, MA.  The wind was so strong that it took my breath away and almost blew me over a couple of times, but the day and the place were so beautiful that I wanted to finish at least one painting on location.  Painting in acrylics makes these conditions very challenging as the paint thickens and dries quickly when the air is so cool and the wind is so strong.  Having to work super quickly makes me get to the heart of the scene and focus on the basics.
