Surf Painting, Pemaquid Moon, 12×20 plein air oil by Deborah Chapin

$1,800.00

Surf Painting, Pemaquid Moon, 12×20 plein air oil painting by Deborah Chapin.  I was painting en plein air on a very windy spring evening off of Pemaquid Point. Because of the cloud cover I didn’t expect to see the moon but then suddenly it was there just as I was beginning to pack up.

There is nothing like painting the surf on location where you become part of what you are painting. The wind and surf spray mix together with the cold chill in the air, all becoming part of the painting.  Sometimes you are successful and have a chance to really just enjoy being alive and revel in the moment. This is one of the lessons that nature demonstrates every time you go out on location.  

This was painted on Pemaquid Point in Maine in late spring before summer had truly arrived.  Contact Us About This Piece if you have questions, please include the title in your subject line.

About the Process of creating Original art:  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 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.   This series of plein air and studio paintings are new work added to an already extensive portfolio of 40 years of art.
