Oil with a palette knife on Blick Studio Artist Board SOLD
Next up in the series painted from photos taken in Provincetown is this one of the Pilgrim Monument taken during our walk in the dunes. I loved how the monument slowly appeared and then rises over the hill as you make your way back from the ocean to the road.
I painted this from a reference photo I took with the pano setting on my phone. It was a beautiful day and we took a walk with some friends in the dunes of Provincetown. You can see some of the famous dune shacks in the distance. The colors and the scenery was so spectacular, like a movie set. And I took a ton of images so you can be sure I will be painting several more from this scene.
Its difficult to get a good photo of the palette knife texture at this long horizontal size, so I took these close up shots. They are little mini paintings, I love shooting these.

Paul asked if I would do a painting of his place in Provincetown. The photo reference he sent me was taken during a summer party and the lighting was just spectacular.
With all of the snow and cold we've been having here in Boston, this was a very welcome subject to paint.
