2nd attempt at painting the Moonrise at Pemaquid Point Lighthouse

2nd attempt at painting the Moonrise at Pemaquid Point Lighthouse starting October 10th- 13th/15th weather permitting etc...

Moonrise over Pemaquid

So We're gearing up again for another Moonrise Painting. This one the Hunter Moon .....AHHHOUUUU !!!!

The Moon is full this month October 15th I believe and again I am going to try and catch it before the sunset or coincidental. This month however, I'm taking the approach of the outdoor studio technique working up the piece over a series of similar days with the final part of the piece going in on the best moonrise date. I'm working out the composition now so hopefully all will go well and I will post updates here.

Original Paintings: Les Vagues, 21x34, plein air oil by Deborah Chapin

Surf Painting, Les Vagues (the waves) Original Art, by Deborah Chapin

By Deborah Chapin

Original Art, Les Vagues (the waves), original plein air painting on linen canvas by Deborah Chapin, Marine art, Brittany France, Seascape , marine artist

“Les Vagues”, is original art, a marine art piece as part of group of plein air oil paintings of the coast in various types of weather, part of personal collection going into the gallery for sale.  

 

About the Process:  I like to paint several smaller paintings, original art as plein air paintings. working myself up to larger painting, as I learn the subject matter.  Gradually developing a portfolio which expresses the full character of the place.   This piece was painted along the Brittany Coast near Diben.  I believe that a place must be explored and appreciated and allowed to seep in at it’s own pace.   I am not a slam bam thankyou…. kind of artist.  In my opinion speed is antithetical to art.  I think deeply and like to delve into the nature of the place,  learning the nooks and crannies and developing a deep appreciation of its beauty.   Instant gratification is not my thing, staying during long visits of a month or more exploring the culture, the history and the people of a place is my type of exploration.

Please note that these are one-of-a-kind paintings, this piece come with a 3.5″ x3″ hardwood moon gold leaf frame, I sell my work directly to the collectors thus am able to sell at lower prices than my peers who pay steep gallery commissions. Top paintings in my collection can go for double this price and still be priced fairly in the marketplace. Please see my credentials.

“Pemaquid Point at Low Tide”, is original art, a Maine art piece aiming toward painting a moonlight painting in the Fall.   It is part of my VELPme project (Video Exploration Log Painting Maine’s Coast).  This painting shows Mid Coast Maine in one of its many moods, this one being a calm late summer evening as the full moon watch began.   There was a crowd of people ready to drink in the moonrise just a little after sunset.  The next moonrise will take place coincidentally with the sunset.    This is not my first moonrise piece.  I have done at least two other paintings,  one from a plein air series that I did in Black Water’s wildlife preserve, and another I did from a trip to Jackson Hole Wyoming.  Other Original Art pieces and Moonlight Paintings are listed below:

 

About the Process:  I like to paint several smaller paintings, working myself up to larger work, as I learn the subject matter.  Gradually developing a portfolio which expresses the full character of the place.   Pemaquid Point is no different to than one of my favorite haunts in France.  It must be explored and appreciated and allowed to seep in at it’s own pace.   I am not a slam bam thankyou…. kind of artist.  I think of speed as antithetical to art.  I think deeply and like to delve into the nature of the place,  learning the nooks and crannies and developing a deep appreciation of its beauty.   Instant gratification is not my thing.  I have never been someone who thought a cursory look at someplace even counted as having seen something, even as a tourist.   I went back many times, and stayed during long visits of a month or more exploring the culture, the history and the people of a place. This series of plein air and studio paintings are new work added to an already extensive portfolio of 40 years of art.

Moonrise 16x34 plein air oil on limen canvas by Deborah Chapin

Art Prints, Moonrise, Plein ar Oil by Deborah Chapin

By Deborah Chapin

Moonlight is a favorite subject of mine.   This plein air oil painting describes the light as it fades and the change from the last light of the day to the first light of night and the shimmering moon casts it magic.  In the fall the moon overlays the sunset creating soft light landscapes and seascapes which enchant the mind and spirit.  This piece was a set of paintings which led up to this piece.  This plein air oil painting was painted on location as the sunset and the moon rose.  It was exhibited in the 2007 Arts for the Parks exhibition and toured through the museum circuit. 16×34 limited art print edition of 50 printed in permanent pigment inks. Signed by the artist.  Contact Us About This Piece please include the title in your subject line. Landscape prints on canvas.

Art Prints, Moonlight in the Deep Woods, by Deborah Chapin

By Deborah Chapin

Moonlight has a magical quality all its own.   As the light fades and the change from the last light of the day to the first light of night the shimmering moon plays against the mystery of the woods.  Painted from sketches on a trip through Jackson Hole, the first dusting of snow and the twilight I love to painting. 20×32 limited art print edition of 30 printed in permanent pigment inks.
