30 IN 30 Challenge - Painting #7
This painting is called "Sun and Shade". It is painting #7 of the 30 IN 30 Challenge. The view for this painting is on Peaks Island, Maine. I enjoyed painting this summer scene while in my warm studio. It is so cold outside right now! One summer day my husband and I took the ferry from Portland to Peaks Island. We rented some bikes and explored the island. I took lots of reference photos for future paintings. For this painting I was inspired by the warm sunlit areas and the cool shadow areas. 8"x 8" oil on canvas. Thank you for reading this post!
