Islesford Painting Workshop 2014

Published by at 11:28 am under landscape,sketchbook,travel

For the third year I joined the excellent painting workshop held at the Dock gallery/restaurant in Islesford, on Little Cranberry Island, off the coast of Mt. Desert Island in Maine. Henry Isaacs and Ashley Bryan do a wonderful job with this every year, the restaurant feeds us like kings, locals let us stay in their beautiful homes, and it’s always a great group of folks to paint and socialize with.

Here’s  recap of 2012 and 2013.

The workshop started off with the traditional day of fog, then turned sunny and beautiful for the rest of the time. I worked almost exclusively in gouache. Most of these are painted on 5×7″ watercolor postcards.

    Alison & Gareth – thank you so much for posting the photographs. They are great. A really nice remembrance of a great workshop.

    Hope to see you both next year. Gareth, I will get the book I told you about in the mail next week.

    Love the purple mountains, the sweet lady in the blue hat, the rocky coastlines…all of the colors you use bring the sights and even the smells of the ocean, beach and greenery alive. Great job, thanks for posting!
