Tuesday Outing with the Plein Air Painters of Maine Northern Chapter
Last Tuesday I traveled at the invitation of Alison Dibble for a wonderful day painting the local color of Brooklin Maine. Alison had suggested two sites that proved to be worth the effort to stay warm.

It was a cold day to paint but luckily we were protected from the wind by the trees.
With the tide going out I had plenty of time to paint these boats on the beach.
The natural colors were so beautifully blended. Nature has a wonderful way of balancing color. The blue boat was the perfect accent color for all that.

Here's how I ended the morning.
After a wonderful (and warm) fish chowder lunch graciously provided by Alison. We headed to our second sight, the mud flats at Salt Pond.

That's Alison bundled up and painting. I left my paint tubes in my truck and of course I ran out of some colors on the palette near the end of my attempt here. I took that as a sign that it was time to be heading home.
Brooklin is a beautiful area to paint and I will certainly be back.
A beautiful painting, thanks for show it us and show the step by step, more interesting.
My name is Jocelyn and I am with Dwellable. I am looking for fun and authentic blogs about Brooklin and yours happened to catch my eye. If you’re open to it, shoot me an e-mail at jocelyn(at)dwellable(dot)com.
