I get a lot of ideas and inspiration for painting when I visit my favorite painting place - Schoodic Point.
(Schoodic Point) is part of Acadia National Park. However, it is not on the main island, it is a peninsula further up the coast near a small village called Winter Harbor. It has stunning views and lots of crashing waves on rocks.
|Small color study and beginning of larger piece|
I started again with a small color study for composition. It also helps me become familiar with the mood. You see, I'm a moody artist. I don't mean I walk around all day with a sour attitude, I mean I enjoy paintings that express more than just sunshine and clear blue skies.

I like the balance in this arrangement. It still has movement but the two dark areas of rocks are tied together nicely by the broken wave.
