Inspiration drive

Water study I 
8 x 10"

I've worked out ideas for a new painting today and kept rejecting them one by one.  The one above is one of them.  Its a quick study of the beach at Conception Harbour on a very windy day.  There must have been a spill of fuel so the shoreline was sandbagged.  The image study is fine, but just won't work on the scale and size canvas that I have in mind. So this evening I went out to get inspired and took some images of what I saw.

Slipway, Pouch Cove

Lobster Pots, Bauline

The Littlest Room

Sunset, Topsail Beach

Wow, what inspiration you have all around - any of these photos would make a great painting! I like the waterscape study you did, too - perhaps some just want to be small paintings?

Great photos Jeanette! I shivered a little, imagining a cool sea breeze... Wonderful inspiration here for textural, abstract pieces??

I love it when a painting portrays light so well that it makes my eyes squint to look at it. Excellent job!
