"Bait House"

I just got back from the annual Rockport Plein Air painting trip with 11 other people. We all had a great time and painted many local scenes. At the end of the day, several of us had painted the same vicinity, but all the paintings looked so different. This is an ink sketch I did of a little bait shack I then watercolored. We had a lot of wind, plenty of bugs and very irregular sunlight. That's the fun of plein air - you never know what "elements" will hamper your painting task. At the end of the day there were plenty of sunburns, show & tell, lots of laughs and stories to share. Great group of painting friends!!
