Painted at the Scarborough Marsh today #50 in the series!!! Rain threatened most of the day and it was raining lightly when I left to go paint, stopped just when I got to the marsh. Started to paint at 2pm about 50 degrees. Took some pics of the painting in progress today, I started with Ersta paper dry mounted to foam core and applied a coat of magenta pastel to the paper. Used a large paint brush and Spectrafix to move the pastel around and cover the paper. Then did a drawing with a hard pastel stick and started to apply the sky colors and continued to have fun with color! Used a small piece of foam pipe insulation to blend. It was pretty cold with a slight wind, but I worked till almost sunset. Took this gorgeous sunset pic of the marsh across the road. Rewarded myself with a walk on Pine Point Beach after painting. I have the plein air bug real bad right now! It's just great to be outdoors in Maine in November and painting!
