Crab boat, Knapp Narrows

The more I research the bay the more I fall in love with it. I’ve been returning to Tilghman Island a few times a year to explore Poplar Island. One afternoon I was eating lunch in a restaurant in Knapp Narrows and this was the scene I was seeing throughout my lunch.
I’m learning to paint the bay and all the lovely boats and birds that inhabit it. It’s a slow process. As my instructor said during the last class “ it takes a long time to learn the skills to do what you want”. Indeed it does.

Uart 400 and a myriad of soft pastels.

I hadn’t planned on doing a painting today since I had fulfilled my first class lessons. Well, I didn’t do the cubes. Yuk! But I guess I’m getting in the groove and decided I needed to paint this. Richardson Premium, white, paper mounted on gator board, 5×7. Blue Earth soft pastels and Diane Townsend terrages.
