|Camden schooner fleet, 20X16, oil on canvasboard, $1085, contact Camden Falls Gallery.|
|Luckily, I got it mostly painted before the boats started to leave on me.|
Yesterday I was up at the crack of dawn so I could paint the schooner fleet at Camden. Even by my standards, this painting got awfully complicated, particularly when the fleet started to go out, one by one.
|The kayak students went by so many times the instructor asked me if I'd included them in my painting.|
But it all worked out just fine—I’d drafted the hulls first, so it was just a question of filling in the rigging. Today, I’m in search of the Lazy Jack II, and since I know it goes out at 9:45 AM, I’m going to try to get to Camden by 5:30. Which is why I’m keeping this brief.
Sorry, folks. My workshop in Belfast, ME is sold out. Message me if you want a spot on my waitlist, or information about next year’s programs. Information is available here.
