Cabin In Maine

Cabin In Maine
Watercolor 5X7
 
I haven't had much time to paint lately. We have been traveling again. This time to the other end of the country on the west coast. But I had my photos of Maine with me so I painted this little painting of a charming rental cabin near the water. I saw buoys all over the place; the people in Maine seem to like to decorate inside and out with them. I can see why, they are colorful and have interesting shapes. Some of them are weathered and well used. This little cabin was with a group of cabins all quite small. It reminds me of another era; one without high rises, chain hotels and condos. Just a simple cabin, fresh air, the sea and sunshine.

  3. Thanks for looking at my challenge paintings. Those little ones are not that hard to do and I am doing water soluble oils using Walnut oil as a medium and they are just sort of flowing! I usually do watercolors, or acrylic, which I am about to not do anymore(acrylic) as oils really look so much richer.Still love watercolors best! It is fun, but then I am not able to travel like you are, which would also be wonderful! Hope you are having a great time. I really like your little cabin painting with the nice shadow!
