Last month I shared the beginnings of this seascape painting, inspired by the rocky Cape Ann seacoast, a beautiful stretch of beach just north of Boston. As of today, this is how the still in-progress painting appears. I anticipate it will be completed by mid August, so keep following me as I continue to feature it in upcoming blog posts.
I have been posting daily updates on its progress-a few photos are enclosed below (I know, why didn’t I quit after June 25)? One of my favorite things about sharing my progress are the questions I get from followers on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook:How do you do this?What materials do you use?Are you kidding me, you “paint” with a turkey baster?Shut up! You’re just copying over a photograph (the sculptor Rodin suffered a similar fate, so I figure I’m in good company here).
For the next few weeks, I will share my painting process on Instagram Live, for everyone who wants to learn more about how I paint with pulp.
And don’t forget, this painting will be featured in a Podcast hosted by Helen Heibart to a world-wide audience. My fifteen minutes are here at last!!
