Grout pile

Today I clambered out onto the rocks at Halibut Point State Park so I could paint the Grout Pile – the mountain of waste granite pieces from the Babson Farm Quarry. Painting out on the rocks was a thrill – cormorants diving in the water and the lobster boats going by (with the occasional waft of diesel fuel). I had planned on setting up my easel but ended up just sitting with my board on my lap. It wouldn’t have been a pretty sight if the wind blew over the easel and knocked my sable brushes into the crevasses between the granite.

    Really enjoying all these waterfront paintings… the rocks and the water are great! Can’t wait to see the final scans because I am sure there is even more zing and depth to the colours.
