Original Oil Painting, Buy Art Online, A Day in the Park by Deborah Chapin

I had a great day painting at Reid Park and painted on Griffith point. The Plein air Painters of Maine were out there but I only saw a few and they were in a different location. Big place so really unless you’re all painting at the same location you don’t see each other. Read More

Original Plein air Oil Painting by Deborah Chapin entitled "A Day in the Park"  12x24 plein air oil.

I painted this original oil painting on site (en plein air).  I had a great day painting at Reid Park and painted on Griffith point. The Plein air Painters of Maine were out there but I only saw a few and they were in a different location. Big place so really unless you’re all painting at the same location you don’t see each other.

It was a great location and I can envision having other pieces that would be good. I did a sketch and I’m going to tweak some of the foreground stones. But great color to work with. Such fun to finally be getting in the groove. This is where I stopped yesterday and I have some work to do this morning but I will get to it this afternoon.

I think the location that I picked would make a great large piece and and I have to see in a different types of weather too.

I traveled over over to the other side and saw a perfect location for the fall at dusk.

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.
