This sketch captures the wonderful contorted shape of the black spruces that dot the Maine sea coast. I did this all in shades of blue and gray which is how it looks when the sun in in front of you and everything is back-lit.
I am a painter living in Vermont. I've been painting for about 20 years learning as I go along. In the last couple of years I've been learning a bunch of new painting techniques and experimenting with new subject matter.
